Upon completion of this module, students should demonstrate
(1) a working knowledge of the key theoretical and methodological debates and issues underpinning race-critical and decolonial scholarship
(2) advancement of critical understandings and analyses regarding substantive areas of study relevant to their own work
(3) development of skills necessary to undertake advanced research in these areas
(4) engagement in exploration/experimentation with new ideas, approaches and practices
This module draws exclusively on the work of scholars of colour and from the global South that is often absent from conventional European university curricula and programmes of study. This includes women of colour, indigenous, critical race and queer scholars, as well as those working in the areas of subaltern studies, Africana studies, anti-/post- and decolonial studies. Transdisciplinary, transcultural and transnational, the key works covered in the course all take the racialized histories, problematiques and consequences of colonialism, imperialism and western (Anglo-European, white, Christian, patriarchal, heteronormative and so on…) knowledge formations as central starting points.

The weekly work will involve a variety of different activities and techniques, all of which involve some element of response to assigned readings, of critical self-reflection and of collective engagement during class time. Discussion and sharing of students' final projects will take place throughout the second half of the trimester; and students will receive feedback, either written or oral, post-assessment.
