The course explores the way in which gender influences and structures the experiences of Indigenous women and men in the past and the present. It encourages students to engage in critical analysis and discussions by presenting relevant examples of the way in which gender and Indigeneity intersect in different contexts. The course material covers a range of issues involving gender and gender roles, including land, art and popular culture, activism, feminism, violence, and race. Particular attention is paid to colonial constructs of gender and gender roles within Aboriginal communities and Aboriginal women's and men's roles in subverting the colonisation of their identities.
