Imperialism and Sexuality: India, South Asia and the World: Writing-Intensive Seminar

History 39SC - Fall 2019

What is the connection between the appropriation of other people's resources and the obsession with sex? Why is 'race' essential to the sexual imperatives of imperialism? How has the nexus between 'race,' sexuality, and imperial entitlement reproduced itself despite the end of formal colonialism? By studying a variety of colonial documents, memoirs produced by colonized subjects, novels, films and scholarship on imperialism, we will seek to understand the history of imperialism's sexual desires, and its continuation in our world today. PREREQUISITE: Sophomore standing or permission of the instructor. Modern, South Asia.
