Selected Topics in Indigenous Studies (3)
Class Number: 4512
Delivery Method: In Person
Topics will vary from term to term depending on faculty availability and student interest where the body of work may not otherwise be covered in-depth in regular courses.
This course will establish a basic understanding of the modern structures and logics of militarism, and the challenges posed to them by Indigenous peoples across the Pacific. We will focus on Indigenous perspectives from heavily militarized and archipelagic regions including Guåhan, Hawai'i, and Okinawa among others. We will also engage literatures concerning topics like land, territory, and property, which will prepare students to understand and participate in the pertinent geographical and political debates.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS
SFU’s Academic Integrity website http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the university community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the university. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the university. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
