New at SOAS for 2014: Africa - Europe: Post-Colonial Politics, Migration and the Diaspora
Dates: Monday 30 June- Friday 18 July
The Department of History is pleased to announce a new intensive three-week summer course, Africa - Europe: Post Colonial Politics, Migration and the Diaspora. This course is a historical and sociological introduction to the study of African-European Relations, with particular attention to questions of post-colonial politics, the African Diaspora in Europe, citizenship, ethnicity, discrimination, narratives of race-based identity, “blackness” and colour-blindness, and rhetoric of multiculturalism. We will look at post-colonial issues of migration from Africa to Europe and what they tell us about post-colonial politics in the UK and France. We will investigate the impact of the historical and colonial legacies of European countries on policies and legislation on migration and citizenship, the ways in which each country has dealt with issues of race, gender and national identity and how people of African descent in the UK and in France have reacted/responded to these issues so far.
Fees: £1250 for 3 weeks full time, plus a £55 non-refundable application fee. Discounts are available; please see the website for details.
Language Requirements: there is a minimum English language requirement if English is not your first language: IELTS (www.ielts.org), 7 overall or higher, with at least 6.5 in all sub scores or equivalent.
