INDI-3110-SDI: Policing Across Imperialism (Web course)
May 25, 2021-June 14, 2021
Instructor: Dr. Angie Wong


This course examines the relationship between power and the police under three modes of imperialism: Classical Colonialism, Settler Colonialism and Post Colonialism. Students will read historic and contemporary texts about colonial resistance and the ways in which power and violence constituted the making of settler colonial countries such as Canada. We also consider policing beyond Canada and examine the colonial and post-colonial situations in places such as Algeria, Vietnam and India. By the end of this course, students will have a deeper understanding of the role of the police and policing institutions in the making of a nation state.
