Summary of the course:

In the modern period, two continents became the playgrounds for massive colonizaitons: America and Eurasia. In both cases, the rise of modern states enabled conquest and settlement of enormous spaces, previously inhabited by thin populations of nomadic and semi-nomadic peoples. This class explores aspects of these colonization processes and introduces the students to main historical questions pertaining to colonization history. We will explore different patterns of colonization (from fur trade to agricultural settler capitalism), the ways in which the rising US and Russian Empire dealt with native populations, and discuss how the US and Russian intellectuals imagined the role of colonization in their respective histories.
