This course draws on decolonial Indigenous feminist scholarship and post-colonial development thought to theorize about colonial gendered violence in context of ongoing settler colonialism. Guided by writings of Indigenous and racialized women and decolonial scholars, the course explores themes such as: post and settler colonialisms; recognition and refusals; law and violence; missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, trans, and two-spirit persons; gendered and sexualized violence; consent; sexual labour; international and Indigenous laws; and decolonial and transformative anti-violence possibilities.

Prerequisite(s): 12 credit units SOC courses including SOC 212, or permission of the instructor.
