Indigenous-Settler Histories: Comparative Contexts - MHIS301

European colonisation of the globe is one of the most important stories of world history. It defined and shaped colonised and coloniser and left legacies which are still being felt today, even in the stories nations tell about themselves. MHIS301 charts key aspects of this history in global comparative frame focussing on Australia, North America, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa. Using a range of historical sources including documentary and archives, as well as rich web-based resources, the unit explores issues such as contact, resistance and cultural adaptation and the contemporary politics of rights, reparation and memory. It recovers Indigenous historical experience.
