Colonization & Decolonization in the 21st Century

This class will explore the roots of colonization and how that phenomenon played out through history leading up to contemporary manifestations of the colonial model. Contemporary models of colonialism will be explored along with the impacts of those models on communities and individuals. Decolonization efforts that are being applied in many contemporary situations will be examined.  At the end of this course, the student will have become familiar with the historical roots of colonialism,  be able to reference from personal experience and academic study how colonialism is still impacting communities directly and indirectly and will have explored community efforts to decolonize from contemporary models of colonization. This course is for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
