ANTH 50.42 Indigenous Responses to Colonialism: Maya and Maori

This course compares how Maori in New Zealand and Maya in Mexico and Guatemala survived European colonialism to become distinct peoples in a world of postcolonial nation states. Comparison addresses both the diversity of indigenous worlds and changes in European colonialism between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries through the study of cultures as emergent interactions of meaning and power within and between groups, and of racism as the rationalization of institutionalized inequalities across human differences.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
