Indigenous-Settler Relations from 1750 - MHIS201

European colonisation of the globe is one of the most important stories of world history. It defined and shaped coloniser and colonised and left legacies which are still being felt today. This unit charts key aspects of this history in a global comparative frame from the fifteenth century to the present day. Using a range of historical sources from archives to documentary, Indigenous biography and oral histories, as well as a growing body of rich web-based resources it will apply a wide geographical lens to explore issues from contact, resistance and adaptation to the contemporary politics of rights, reparation and reconciliation.
