WS490I: Decolonization Feminisms

This course considers the past and present of settler colonialism in Canada and the ways feminist movements have challenged and/or reinforced these relations in theory and practice. It also considers how Indigenous scholars, activists and allied feminists have engaged with each other, and explores the tensions and possibilities of alliance that exist between movements struggling against capitalist, heteropatriarchal, colonial and white supremacist relations. What are Indigenous critiques of feminism? How might feminism become a tool of decolonization? Students will learn of key terms, theories and politics, and will apply this knowledge through the study of both historical and current issues facing Indigenous peoples in Canada.
