ANT 436 / HUM 436

Theory from the Margins: Post- and Decolonial Theory In And Out of Anthropology

Sindre Bangstad

Back to "Spring 2023" courses

Michel-Rolph Trouillot (1949-2012) argued that «theory is done at the center; color comes from the margin.» Anthropology offers knowledge and insights into the lived worlds of humanity at large. Calls to «decolonize anthropology» are by no means new. But anthropology continues to be a discipline dominated by Western scholars and institutions, and overwhelmingly white. This course will offer an introduction to post- and de-colonial literature and scholarship, and important scholars of and from the `Global South’, and/or of indigenous or racialized minority background from the `Global North.’
