This is an Online Course

Are you interested in recent history? Would you like to learn more about how European colonialism shapes the contemporary world?

Researchers in French studies at the University of Stirling have launched a new free online course called ‘Remembering Empire: Pioneers, Colonisers, and Refugees in French Algeria’. It is open to everyone.

The course introduces learners to two ways of remembering the colonial past through a case study of the French settlers of Algeria. The story of French colonialism in Algeria is little known in the English-speaking world but is an excellent case study for understanding the role of colonial memory in the present. The theories of memory discussed in the course are drawn from recent research in cultural history and literary theory. The course materials are provided in English and presented in 5 chapters comprising of a video, reading exercises, a quiz and the opportunity for discussion.
