Minor in Indigenous Studies - Ethnicity, Nationalism and Race SOSA 3206   Ethnicity, Nationalism and Race
This course looks at the social construction and present relevance of the categories “ethnicity”, “nation”, and “race”. The current prevalence of identity politics and ethnic nationalism suggest the extent to which these categories are both profoundly political and deeply personal. By looking at case studies from Canada and around the world we examine these ideas and their implications. Topics will vary from year to year, but may include Quebec nationalism, multiculturalism, “ethnic” warfare in Rwanda or Bosnia, and race politics. Approved with International Development Studies.
