Teaching migration and Indigenous self determination relationally


Project Summary:

This was an upper year undergraduate course on migration and refugee protection where I challenged the very idea of immigrant settlement (a historically popular area of social work practice) as an innocent, desirable enterprise for social work. Instead, I placed Canada within a global system of nation states, and actively oriented the discussion toward the global project of imperial dispossession even if ‘the global’ seems vast and distant, and therefore, impossible to comprehend. I introduced content aimed to bridge the purported gap between the local and global modes of displacement; in the process, made both relentlessly visible. This is currently being developed as a graduate course.
