Honours Specialization - Race and Racism

CHFS 3037  Race and Racism


Any 24 credits completed; or permission of the instructor.


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




This course will explore the impact of the constructions of race, ethnicity and racism on children and youth, both historically and in the current context. Canada's multiculturalism policy will be examined in order to understand the ways in which state policies may affect children, youth and families. Students will become familiar with a sociological approach to investigating childhood and adolescence and will have the opportunity to critically consider how micro level issues are integrally influenced by broader societal forces and policies. Although the Canadian context will be a central focus, global issues also will be integrated throughout the course.
