CULP 226 - Genocide/Rev Postcoln Zanzibar
The course will explore the history, politics, and aftermath of the violence that accompanied the expulsion of Arabs during the 1964 revolution in Zanzibar. The trip will focus on tackling the lack of information on the ethnic conflict in Zanzibar, and look at how genocide is constructed and labeled in the international community. While studying the concepts of ethnic cleansing, reintegration and repatriation, students will have the opportunity to conduct their own archival and ethnographic research in the field. This seminar will engage with the historical, travelogue, anthropological and political debates on the question of Zanzibari identities, diasporic communities in the Gulf, collective memory and transnational identically across the Archipelago as a site of circularity in the Indian Ocean Rim. Additionally, material addressing the broader questions of racial justice, legacies of slavery and colonization will be covered in depth.
