History of the Present: Racism, Colonialism, and Indigeneity in Canada:

This capstone Majors seminar will give students the opportunity to conduct historical analysis and investigation into some of the most prominent issues relating to Indigenous peoples, racism, and settler colonialism in Canada today. We will consider the histories of settler colonial institutions and systems 9schools, hospitals, jails, foster care, the justice system) that function today as sites of structural racism. And we will consider the range of solutions and alternative futures advanced by Indigenous scholars and activists under the rubrics of decolonization, resurgence, and indigenization.
