POST 185B PZ -Empire and its Critics


Institution: Pitzer

Description: How do people cope with empire? Drawing contemporary and historical cases, this course asks and debates the following questions: How do empires form - and when and why do they fall apart? What is it like to live under empires? What are the most effective means of challenging empires? What do people mean when they (sometimes) claim that the United States is (or has become) an imperial project? In asking these questions, this course considers the challenges posed to empires by territorial states, corporations, tribal and other non-territorial forms of political organization, and tribute systems.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
