Colonization, Migration, Diasporas: Critical Transnational Feminist Perspectives (Saskatoon)

WGST 242: "Colonization, Migration, Diasporas: Critical Transnational Feminist Perspectives (Saskatoon)"

May 10 - May 31, 2017
Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs
1:00 p.m. - 4:20 p.m.
Instructor: Manuela Valle-Castro

This community-engaged course will give participating students the opportunity to engage with critical concepts and community-building practices arising in relation to colonization, migration and diasporas, building a series of theoretical frameworks that will help them complete assignments both for this course and, if they so choose, for a subsequent travel study class in Santiago, Chile. Drawing from interdisciplinary feminist scholarship and via a variety of learning experiences both on campus and at local community sites in Saskatoon, students will develop strategies for exploring and reflecting on the construction of meaning, cultural memories, and possibilities for accurate social and political representation, and for constructive identity-formation in relation to experiences of colonization, migration, and diasporas, in the specific urban and land-based contexts that shape the evolution of Saskatoon as a prairie city.
