    Evening
    Course Date: Wed 26 May 2021

    Location on this date: Online

    African history remains a marginalised topic, both within the historical research landscapes and most educational systems across the world. This reflects how history emerged as a scholarly endeavour in the context of European and American imperialism and nationalism. In this course, read and discuss African history to counter this and do our own work.

  5. History of the world for beginners
    Evening
    Course Date: Mon 31 May 2021

    Location on this date: Online

    Recent events have shown us that we must think globally. Yet, how do we go about that with regards to history? Do we think only about the global past or do we situate our understanding in the global present? And if we can even agree on that, do we give primacy to empires and imperialism, technology and arms, trade and finances, oceans and nature, power and resistance, people or systems, or all of them?
