Imperialism, Race and Genocide - 20096

The Imperialism, Race, and Genocide Connection deals with the historical and cultural processes that were at the center of the Anglo-European modernity. It brings together two courses that examine the theories of race, human origin, evolution, and Social Darwinism, which are intimately connected to issues of imperialism, nationalism, and state-sanctioned violence. The courses together explore how imperialism, race theory, popular culture, and the rise of global capitalism intertwined and influenced each other. Through the study of textual details and broader historical frames, and empirical to interpretive analysis, this Connection looks at the impact of imperial power in the formation of nations and how changing ideas of race are used to construct cultural and political identities.
