This course introduces students to the major concepts and themes that emerge in a critical examination of diversity and Canada's settler-colonial criminal justice system. As well as engaging in discussions about race and ethnicity, students will consider other aspects of intersectional diversity such as gender, sexual orientation, age, (dis)ability, and religion. This course will also foreground the diversity of Indigenous peoples in Canada. In addition, students will examine the social, political, and legal contextualization of theories of diversity and their relevance to justice studies. Finally, students will have the opportunity to consider how this theorization applies to practical scenarios that arise within the justice profession.
Note: Restricted to Justice and Open Studies
