the american midwest and french algeria


North America was one of the first early-modern settler colonies, and this study examines its evolution from a European settler colony into an American settler empire and argues that the United States also became an important model for modern settler colonialism and Indigenous policy. Likewise, Algeria has long been considered a model for settler colonialism but the process of its formation as such has not yet been studied in depth. It is hoped that the comparison of these two archetypes, then, will yield powerful insights into how and why they formed that may also help us understand the development of other settler colonies.
