Unit coordinator permission required for enrolment
This course will involve students participating in a highly structured role-play game that focuses on India on the Eve of its independence. We will begin by thinking about what empire is. We will briefly trace the establishment and scope of the British Empire and students will be asked to think about what it meant to be colonised. To do this we will play the Reacting to the Past game "Defining a Nation: India on the Eve of Independence, 1945", set at the Simila Conference. The game will be played over six weeks of the semester. In addition to researching a particular role, students will deliver oral presentations in-role and produce written work from the perspective of their role. Students should finish this course with a sense of the key challenges of decolonization in British colonies and some understanding of the meaning of the end of Empire.
