Decolonizing Pol in Easter Eur

Spring 2021

Taught By: Jessica Pisano

Section: A

CRN: 8884

Credits: 3

Much of contemporary scholarship about Eastern Europe and Eurasia relies upon conceptual frameworks inherited from the Cold War and imperial and colonial pasts. This collaborative course critically interrogates and contextualizes these frameworks and their accompanying vocabularies with the aim of understanding the intellectual genealogies of approaches to politics about the region. It examines possibilities of emic alternatives that emerge from research in situ. And it works toward developing an agenda for decoloniality in social research in and about the region. Specific research themes for a given semester will be identified in consultation with students enrolled in the course.
