This is an interdisciplinary, team-taught course designed to teach students ways to think about the complexities of human cultures, past and present, helping them examine how imperialism continues to shape contemporary understandings of personal, institutional, and cultural identities (both of selves and others). The course analyzes global cultures with a focus on the economic, environmental, political and social consequences of specific imperial regimes and the ongoing impact of these regimes on particular groups that continue to live with the legacies of empire. Prerequisites: DISC 100 (or equivalent) and Anchor I. Cross Listings: ENGLISH 280.
