HIS472H1: Indigenous-Newcomer Relations in Canadian History

Hours: 
24S

The trajectory of Canadian history has been (and continues to be) shaped significantly by the changing relationships between indigenous peoples and newcomers to what is now Canada. Through discussion of readings on various seminar topics, we will explore the multi-faceted contours of these relationships, from cultural encounters, treaties & alliances, and missionization to colonization, assimilation, residential schools and contemporary issues.
