Description

The history of British Columbia is all around us. HIST 305 examines the events and processes that have made this place, with a particular focus on the late eighteenth century to the present. Key themes will include colonialism and migration; the role of race, gender, class, and sexuality in shaping British Columbia and different people’s experiences of it; power, protest, and the making of a modern state; and British Columbia’s relationship with Canada and the world. We will also reflect on how these histories continue to shape British Columbia and our lives here today.
