Indigenous Theory and Thought - INST 2003

This course explores the complex issues associated with Indigenous peoples, their politics, and their relationship with Western theory, research, and knowledge production. Reading from contemporary Indigenous voices across disciplines, the course introduces students to the interventions that Indigenous scholars have made in the production of academic knowledge, as well as their contributions to the burgeoning field of critical race theory. Overall, students will develop the skills to critically examine how Indigenous movements, resistance, culture, and political theory and feminisms challenge structures of "whiteness" and settler colonialism.

Note: Prerequisite INST 2000 Restricted to Indigenous Studies, Open Studies

This Level 2 course will build upon foundations from INST 2000, introducing students to critical race theory, which will be examined using an Indigenous Canadian lens.
