Course Description: This course explores the various roles Aboriginal women have played in Aboriginal and Settler society. It examines stereotypical representations of Aboriginal women in colonial art and culture; the depiction of Aboriginal women in literature, cinema, and fine arts; the role Aboriginal women have played in the economy as workers; and their roles as nurturers, carers, activists, and community leaders. Theories and approaches from gender and post-colonial studies and new historicism provide the intellectual framework for this course. The course concludes with consideration of the critique that female Aboriginal artists and writers have made of these representations, and the forms of self-representation produced in their work.
