Indigenous Peoples and the Academy
0.5 Credit

Hours per week:
  • Lecture/Discussion: 3

This course explores how western-trained academics in disciplines such as anthropology, archaeology, medicine, and social work, among others, have shaped popular images of  Indigenous people. It offers a brief history of academic research in Indigenous  communities, followed by an examination  of how Indigeneity, Indigenous knowledge, repatriation of cultural and intellectual property, research ethics, “Indigenization,” and community-based research can reshape current relationships between Indigenous peoples and the academy.
