History

HIST2301Indigenous and Settler Canada, Part 13 ch (2C 1T) [W]
This entry level course, recommended for either first- or second-year students, begins the survey of Canadian history from early human settlement of North America to Confederation in 1867. It will pay particular attention to the centuries after 1500 when interactions between Indigenous peoples and Europeans intensified, resource extractive economies developed sent North American products to foreign markets, and societies of Euro-North Americans were planted and became permanent. How Indigenous peoples accommodated, negotiated with, at times resisted these newcomers, and in turn how Europeans justified their intrusions into the lands of others, will be recurring themes. Not available for credit to students who have completed HIST1300 or HIST2300.
