Modern ethnohistory features research that reflects the protocols and philosophical outlooks of Indigenous communities. It includes a commitment to involve Indigenous communities as full participants in the process of research and knowledge creation. This course explores both the historical context in which ethnohistory emerged, as well as the ways in which it has changed over time from 1900 to the present. As we look at this history, we’ll look at a variety of regional case studies from across the continent. The course consists of one three-hour seminar a week. Class discussion is based on class readings and assignments, as well as guest speakers when appropriate.

Prerequisite(s): 3 credit units HIST courses at the 200-level or above; and 3 credit units of HIST courses at the 300-level or above; or permission of the department.
