HIST 5410A: Topics in American History – Imperialism, Resistance, and the Global Cold War
Fall 2023

Instructor: Professor Candace Sobers

This seminar employs a thematic approach to re-think and re-imagine the Global Cold War through the lenses of empire and resistance, including imperial repertoires, geopolitics and security cultures, decolonization and postcoloniality, race, class, and gender. This course uses historical sources and methods, including cultural production and critical scholarships, to better understand key elements of the contemporary world, including the borders and partitions, the persistence of the state, postimperial imaginaries and intangibles, and neocolonial legacies.
