Minor in Law, Justice and Society - Rough Justice - Order, Disorder and Canadian Popular Culture to the 1890s HIST 2221   Rough Justice - Order, Disorder and Canadian Popular Culture to the 1890s
CREDIT HOURS: 3
This course investigates the character of popular culture, investigating forms of community control and ideas of order among different classes and cultures, beginning with aboriginal societies at the time of contact, through the revolutionary era, to the Victorian period and the first decades of Canada’s nationhood. The sexual tensions of frontier towns, drunken revelry and riot, the smallpox, religious and revolutionary passions, and other sources of disorder (and the evolution of the means of making order) feature in this exploration of Canadian history’s most dramatic passages.
