HISTORY

History European Revolutions This module provides students with a deep understanding of the concept of revolution and the way that civial society can alter the course of history. Possible examples of revolutions studied are: The Industrial Revolution, The French Revolution and the Russian Revolution. This facilitates a clear understanding of cause and effect; change and development. The political, economic and social effects of these changes are analysed and debated, to determine if there are alternatives to the way governments/authorities govern their respective societies. South African Women’s History/ Gender Studies In this module, students use the case study of the nineteenth century Xhosa Cattle Killing Movement to show how gender perspective can alter the way we view the past. The aim is to provide a critique of the patriarchal nature of colonial history and show how women were either excluded from what was regarded as the domain of men or how they were clustered as a homogenous group with no identity of their own. This case study is then juxtaposed with a study of South African women in the twentieth century, to see how Social History (History from below) could be used to reclaim the position of women in history. Nationalism and the struggle for Independence – The Vietnam War An exploration of the Vietnam War in the context of the Cold War – looking at the way in which the people of Vietnam struggled for their independence against the military might of the USA. A story of innovation, determination, courage and atrocities. Colonisation and Resistance – A case study of the Congo Students examine a particular example of personal colonisation of the Congo by the Belgian King Leopold II as well as the resistance to this process by the Congolese people. It includes an investigation of the brutal methods of increasing profits under virtual slave labour conditions. In addition, it explores the fundamental racist attitudes that underlay colonialism.
