This course aims to examine the well-established field of international relations through a theoretical and practical postcolonial lens; asking important questions about the nature of regional, racial and gendered biases within Western-centric IR studies and assessing their real-world impact in the projection of state power. Apply now and get an early bird discount of 1490 USD!

Students will be given a comprehensive understanding of the field of postcolonialism and its significance in the context of international relations theory through the writings of several lead theorists. 

 

The course will then move deeper into subjects of postcolonial statecraft, armed resistance, interventionism, international development, and the postcolonial global political economy – accompanied by relevant case studies – to help students get a more tangible sense of the power dynamics within pre-existing postcolonial relationships and how they have impacted our understanding of state power, foreign policy and international relations at-large.

 

Issues of race, ethnicity, gender, class, identity, hegemony, power, discourse, exploitation, development, and politics will be central to the discussion.

“Going to Prague was one of the best experiences of my life. It was an amazing way to immerse myself in a different culture and truly see how big the world is. Every aspect of the city is mesmerizing, from the delicious food to the beautiful buildings. There was never a dull moment while I was there!”
