HIST 492 03 May 2019


This unique community-based experiential fieldschool learning opportunity involves students and faculty spending four weeks living in an Aboriginal community. Initially students attend seminars led by faculty on ethnohistory theory and method, including critical responses to the field as it has been practiced. These include readings that focus on the regional ethnohistory as well as the broader thematic, theoretical, and historiographic literature. Finally, the students, under the guidance of faculty and Aboriginal mentors, engage in independent concentrated research projects that have been identified as important by the Aboriginal community.

Permission of the instructor required.


Students may take this course more than once for credit, provided the topic covered in each offering differs substantially. Students must consult the Department to ensure that the topics covered are different. Post-1815; North America
