CSE445H1: Geographies of Military Occupation, (Un)Freedom and Transnational Solidarity

Hours

24S

Examines how some of the longest military occupations in history have produced forms of inequality, injustice, and violence that have given rise to mass resistance and global solidarity on an unprecedented scale. Through a comparison of cases such as Palestine/Israel and Kashmir analyzes concepts such as imperialism, settler colonialism, militarism, occupation, nationalism, indigeneity, demography, sovereignty, collective memory, resistance, liberation and transnational solidarity.  Draws on memoirs, oral histories, films, poetry, music, and literature to understand the historical and political economic foundations that have produced these occupations and the forms of resistance and liberation struggles that have shaped international solidarity.
