ANT215H1: Fight the Power!: A Global History of Resistance and Revolution


This course examines the efforts of Indigenous communities in North America to subvert, resist, and persist in the face of hegemonic power. Over the course of the semester, students will develop a critical understanding of the inner workings of power and the impact of these structures on the contemporary world. In examining the power-resistance dynamic, this course takes a cross-cultural comparative approach that situates North American case studies in relation to examples of resistance from Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean. In examining these case studies, students are asked to engage with a variety of primary sources including songs, speeches, literary texts, and material culture.
