(HIST 3910) Histories of the Pacific Islands
This class provides an introduction to the history of the Pacific Islands, also known
as Oceania. The Pacific Ocean is vast - covering over 30% of the earth – but often
depicted as empty, marginal, or isolated from the rest of the world. Yet, imperialism
and colonialism in the region has long served significant economic, political, and
military needs of Western countries. This class will analyze the histories of both
Indigenous framings and Western framings of the Pacific, including the origins of
the Polynesia, Melanesia, and Micronesia divisions imposed by Europeans in the eighteenth
century. We will analyze various forms of imperialism and colonialism in the Pacific
as well as Indigenous resistance and movements to achieve decolonization.
