About the course

Through this course, the student will develop an understanding of the origins and history of the South African apartheid system and how it affected people within and beyond South Africa. It connects colonial-era South Africa with present-day postcolonial tensions, using a variety of sources and materials. Students will also develop their ability to analyse contemporary ideological conflicts and multiple ways of exercising political resistance, using South Africa and the anti-apartheid struggle as a case study.
