Indigenous Pol & Envir Justice

Fall 2018

Taught By: Jaskiran Dhillon

Section: A

CRN: 4750

Credits: 3

This interdisciplinary course critically examines the interplay among settler colonialism, indigenous resurgence, and the politics of climate justice. Students gain an understanding of how histories of invasion, conquest, and ongoing settler colonial dispossession factor into debates over extractive industries and further consider the dynamics and possibilities of indigenous resurgence and epistemology in response to corporate and governmental encroachment on, and pollution of, land, water, and air. Particular attention will be paid to case studies in Canada and the United States, with a distinct focus on the extractive industries of mining and the tar sands (located in Fort McMurray, Northern Alberta). Seminars discussions are complimented by direct engagement with scholars and advocates working on the frontlines of climate justice and indigenous political movements (via Skype and guest lectures). An exploration of transnational indigenous organizing, including linkages to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and the UN Working Group on Indigenous Peoples, will be integrated into our seminar discussions on the geopolitics of settler colonialism.
