Cult-C: Neocolonial Machtpolitik(Bekeh Ukelina, SUNY Cortland)
Week 1, 12:00 noon (NY time)
This seminar will explore the concept of power-politics in the relationships between nations of the Global North and those of the Global South. It will examine the roles played by international institutions and global super-powers such as the United States and China in capitalist expansion and indirect political control. We will interrogate the rising role of China’s development aid in Africa and Latin America and the response of other Global Powers to China. We will also pay particular attention to the roles played by Non-Governmental Organizations and institutions in the neocolonial agenda.
