HIS 3472: Colonial and Post-Colonial Asian Immigration to Europe and Africa (5)

While Asians have directed colonial and postcolonial conversations on inequalities of power in their home states, they also have contributed significantly to these conversations outside of Asia. The British recruited thousands of Chinese and Indian laborers to work in colonial Africa during the late 1800s, and the French encouraged Vietnamese and Chinese workers to move to France to build armaments during the Great War. This movement was only the beginning. After independence, millions of Asians (from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Vietnam, and Indonesia) emigrated to Europe seeking economic opportunity and/or refuge from untenable situations at home. This course considers the role that Asian immigrants have played in Africa and Europe from the late nineteenth century to the present, and how their voices and presence have challenged ideas about race, class, gender, and secularism.
