Module Outline

This module analyzes the relationships between Palestine and the histories, politics and struggles that have shaped the contemporary international. The question of Palestine sits at the intersection of two main axes of international politics; the colonial foundations of the world order and the global histories of solidarity between peoples and movements that have also shaped the present. Combining interdisciplinary perspectives with decolonial approaches in IR, this course examines the way anti-colonial thinkers and scholars locate Palestine within histories of colonial settlement that extend back to the Americas, and reconceptualize systems of global power and violence across these geographies. Centering the anti-colonial within the international, the module explores past and present theories and practices of internationalism(s), global solidarity and their ongoing attempts to fashion an alternative international order.
