(Zoom course)
July 4 – August 15, 2022
Monday to Thursday
2:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Instructor: Dr. Robyn O'Loughlin

This course offers a historical critique of the rise of colonialism and governance, with particular focus on the education system. The first half of the course will focus on understanding the rise of colonialism and the impact in education. Literature and legislation will be examined to consider important socio-historical issues, racism, colonization and continued colonialism. Education is a large force behind the economy, so understanding educational influence is important in understanding capitalism. The second half will examine resistance movements led by Anishinaabe peoples. This course will offer discussions on how systems relying on colonization may be deconstructed and decolonized.
