This module offers a reflection on revolutions globally. It specifically focuses on three types of revolutions: political (revolutionising power relations), social (revolutionising subjectivities and intimate relations), and technological (revolutionising human relations with the non-human). The module is particularly interested in the way these revolutionary transformations have shaped global politics AND intimate human relations. It is particularly interested in the transnational dimensions of revolutions, and draws much material written by scholar from and about Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean.
