Project title: An Exploration of the Ethics of Studying Indigenous Settler Relations at the Undergraduate Level

Department: History

Faculty supervisor: Dr. John Lutz

"When we talk about “Indigenizing the Academy,” the notion that we need to re-evaluate the ethics of teaching/researching Indigenous-Settler relations, and Canadian history more broadly, appears frequently.  Yet there has been little exploration of what this means for undergraduate research projects.  This project will review the historiography on the subject and examine how the best practices (or decolonizing academic research projects might be applied to undergraduate research at Canadian universities."
