Encourages students to engage in a critical analysis of the way in which gender influences and structures the experiences of Aboriginal women and men in the past and the present. A wide range of issues involving gender roles will be covered including land, art, activism, feminism, violence, race, and literature. Particular attention will be paid to colonial constructs of gender roles within Aboriginal communities. Aboriginal women's and men's roles in subverting the colonisation of their identities will be explored.
