“In Search of Indigenous London” Go Global Seminar with FNIS

First Nations and Indigenous Studies is excited to offer their first ever Go Global Seminar titled “In Search of Indigenous London”!

Taught by Professor Coll Thrush, an FNIS associate and member of the UBC History Department, this summer course attempts to rethink the nature of the capital of the British Empire and the Commonwealth by framing it through the experiences of Indigenous children, women, and men who travelled there, willingly or otherwise, from territories that became Canada, the US, New Zealand, and Australia. By the end of the course, students will have disoriented and reoriented themselves through personal engagement, archival history, and site-specific research, bringing their experiences in London back to Vancouver to share with colleagues.
