About

Our world is shaped by colonial conquest, imperial discourses, and the consequences of imperial domination and subordination. This Colonial and Postcolonial Studies programme from Linnaeus University analyses colonial and postcolonial manifestations and effects in the past and the present.

Overview

The Colonial and Postcolonial Studies  programme from Linnaeus University  meets needs in society and research for critical analysis of meanings, implications, and consequences of colonialism at the time of colonial conquest and rule, and in view of how previous colonial relations continue to influence the postcolonial present. Students will acquire knowledge of the formation of the modern world under the impact of colonial power, orientalist discourses, and knowledge networks and of how these are manifested in social and political relations in a postcolonial context. 

Students are challenged to critically examine the working of civilizational and orientalist discourses in political, economic, cultural, religious, and artistic representations.

The programme is particularly suited for students who seek to work in domestic and foreign administration, non-governmental organisations (NGO), schools, news media, museums and cultural institutions. The programme is preparatory to PhD research training.
