HIST 405 FASHION AND MATERIAL CULTURE C. 1600 - 1900  *3 (0-3s-0)

Description: This course explores the practice of fashion as a social, economic, political and cultural phenomenon from a cross-cultural perspective from the 1500s-1800s. We also assess material culture as a source of unique evidence in historical study. The two – fashion and material culture – are inextricably linked. Fashion signals societal change as well as cultural or political tensions; it reveals gendered norms and expectations, while also marking significant economic transformations. Material life and material culture are integral to assessments of fashion and will be a point of study in this course. Prerequisite: *3 in HIST at the 300-level or consent of Department.Taught in conjunction with HIST 617 A1 and HECOL 464.

HIST 460 TOPICS IN CANADIAN HISTORY *3 (0-3s-0)

Prerequisite: *3 in HIST at the 300-level or consent of Department.

A1- Title: Public History in Canada

Description:  Public history addresses how history is made and understood through processes that involve academic historians, other professionals, and broader publics. The activities of museums and archives, scholarly analyses of social memory, narratives embedded in websites and videogames, and various sorts of public commemorations: all can represent examples of public history. The work of presenting and interpreting the past is highly contested due to intersections with contemporary patterns of power and privilege. In this class, we will consider public history in a Canadian context. Students will engage with scholarly readings, hear from experts in the field, participate in field trips, and tackle assignments rooted in real-world public history challenges.

A2- Title: Settler Colonialism & Indigenous Communities

Description: This course will evaluate the concept of settler colonialism as a framework for understanding the history of Western Canada, but we will also examine parallels, connections and networks within a larger context of other settler colonies globally. Topics will include government institutions and policies that facilitated settler aspirations for Indigenous land, residential schools, the settler colonial city, the Indian Act, the pass system, and the multiple ways Indigenous people resisted these initiatives, restrictions and institutions. We will conclude by considering whether the West remains settler colonial today.

B2- Title: Great Plains Women and Gender

Description:  The field of women’s and gender history in the North American West has been divided by the 49th parallel, but scholars are beginning to “step over the line,” to consider their topics beyond the nation state. Comparative, borderlands and transnational approaches offer the opportunity to reconsider, and recast the history of the region as part of a larger story of gender and settler colonialism. In this seminar we will challenge and critique accustomed ways of thinking and explore new directions through an examination of selected topics that traverse the Canadian and American Wests. There will be an emphasis on the rural, agricultural West, and on the era from the late 19th to early 20th centuries.
