Teaching Decolonization Resource Collection

History educators, scholars, and students who are interested in postcolonialism and decolonization may want to check out the Teaching Decolonization Resource Collection, a project of the National History Center in Washington, DC. Officially launched in March 2018, this project "is, in part, an outgrowth of the National History Center's decade-long International Decolonization Seminar." Here, visitors will find "a range of materials to support the study of decolonization in the classroom." This includes numerous bibliographies of primary and secondary sources that can be browsed by theme (e.g. culture, nationalism, politics) or by region (e.g. Africa, Americas, Pacific). Each well-organized bibliography includes a brief annotation and a link to the resource, some of which are available for free. On the project's main page under Educational Materials, readers will find a collection of downloadable Sample Syllabi contributed by college-level educators on topics such as "Comparative Colonialisms: Asia and Africa" and "Gender, Sexuality, and Decolonization in the Global South." Those seeking an overview of this field of study will find links to three introductory publications under What Is Decolonization?, while those looking for supplementary materials will find an annotated list of relevant articles and books under Further Reading.
