This course examines critically the social construction of ethnicity and identity within First Nations, Inuit, and Metis communities, as well as the implications for broader community social responses to those identities. Students will study the myths and realities surrounding the development of racial, ethnic, and cultural categories in North America and learn how social, political, and economic forces have shaped the experiences of different ethnic groups. Students will also be introduced to the concepts of socialization, social interaction, identity formation and self-fashioning; the social construction of class, gender and race, age, and deviance; and other social phenomena.
