EGST 0302 - Seminar in Comparative Indigenous Studies

Credits: 3

This course allows students to critically engage with indigenous narratives through a global discourse analysis. Students will compare migrations in political, economic, social, and historical contexts from comparative perspectives. Who are indigenous peoples and how have they been categorized, racialized, and marginalized within imperialism, colonial, and post-colonial contexts? We examine historical and contemporary debates about indigenous peoples in a global context, especially paying attention to indigenous human rights in the Americas. We will analyze contemporary indigenous discourse within the context of 'Fourth World' and 'First Nation' narratives. We will explore these comparative perspectives through the lens of fiction and non-fiction materials.

Prerequisites: EGST 0201  or EGST 0202 .
