Topics in Canadian History: Marginalized Voices in Canadian History

Though it is impossible to encompass all of the marginalized groups in Canadian society, this course will attempt to do a broad overview of the mosaic of people who have contributed to this nation in the nineteenth and twentieth century. Though many of the people in these groups have been the victims of discrimination and even outright violence, the major themes of this course centre around resistance and resilience. Students will engage with primary sources created by members of LGBTQIAA+, Indigenous, Black Canadian, disabled, and other groups, and seek to explore the intersections of race, culture, and identity in historical discourse.
