This interdisciplinary course is paired with the University of King’s College Public Lectures Series “Representations of Colonialization and De-Colonialization” and will engage with contemporary scholarship and art practices that confront the exploitation, erasure, and systemic marginalization of Indigenous peoples and their culture in Canada and abroad. Through lectures and seminar discussions students will critically engage with topics such as: indigenous-settler relations, slavery in the north, decolonializing museums, indigenous knowledge in anti-colonial contexts, and intersections between slavery and colonial violence against the Mi-kmaq in the Atlantic provinces.
n.b. CTMP, EMSP and HSTC held together, they are not cross-listed.
Note: Students are required to attend the evening lectures which will be held bi-weekly.
