This upper-level undergraduate seminar focused on the field of Native American/Indigenous studies as both a body of critical theory and a form of cultural critique. Interdisciplinary in nature, the seminar examined the theories and major questions in the field, with a deliberate departure from a typical area-studies approach. Major emphasis was put on settlement and resistance in North America, but also in Australia, New Zealand, and Oceania.
