ANTH 4040 People and Cultures of the North American Arctic (2,1,0)

Credits: 3 credits
Delivery: Campus

This course introduces the North American sub-Arctic, Arctic, and High Arctic as discrete cultural regions. Surveying the historical, ecological and cultural diversity of the Arctic, this course reviews anthropological perspectives on the past and present lives and experiences of indigenous peoples who have made the high latitudes their home for millenia. This course documents patterns of social organisation among Inuit, Dene, and Metis with a secondary focus directed towards recent economic, political, and cultural trends in the region resulting from European contact, colonisation, and political devolution.
Prerequisite: ANTH 1210 and completion of 45 credits (any discipline)
