Globalization and Indigenous Politics

Themes

This course investigates globalization and its critique from the perspectives of Indigenous peoples in the lands that we now call the Americas. Taking a regional case study approach, this course will investigate how Indigenous peoples have been impacted by the globalized economic, political, and communications flows. Particular attention will be paid to the dimension of extractive industries, Indigenous resistance, and social movements based on human rights and environmental justice.
