The course supports the development of students’ research, writing and presentation skills through the critical study of objects of material culture, texts, exhibitions, presentations, locations, and events related to Indigenous Studies. Possible themes and subjects may include: Indigenous legacies and histories; the cultural context of Indigenous peoples’ material practices and design; and critiques and explorations of the history of display practices related to Indigenous peoples.
