Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The topic of the course is: History and Indigenous Peoples.
Very often, the discourse about the situation and the status of indigenous peoples is the reference to often-far back historical experiences of injustice. The project course Global History is based on selected examples of the historical background of current conflicts over land, resources and self-government rights. There will also be raised the question if legal solutions and political arrangements can recover historical injustice. Examples will be selected according to the interests of the participants from all parts of the world.

Assessment and permitted materials

Students are expected to attend all classes and meetings, to write a scientific paper (with critical footnotes, 70.000 characters + abstract), and to present the result of their research. The students have to submit the final version of their works latest at August 31, 2018.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
