This student directed seminar focuses on the use of archival research and literature to explore Asian Canadian history. It is based on the assertion that the histories of Asian Canadians must be reframed from simple narratives of victimhood and oppression, and must instead highlight the agencies and achievements of the various communities.


This course is designed to give students who are new to archival research with an opportunity to build strong foundations, while also highlighting the variety of approaches and alternative forms of archives for students who are familiar with archival research to explore (such as oral history, community archives, etc.). Students will draw on skills from a variety of disciplines including history, sociology, and English literature.
