WSFR is offering WS 3330F "The History of Black Women in Canada" this summer as an online course.


The history of Black women in Canada is often overlooked, ignored, and neglected. Black women have been pushed to the periphery of Canadian historiography as their stories – and voices – are erased from the mainstream Canadian narrative. This interdisciplinary course will explore the history of Black women in Canada from slavery to the twenty-first century. The course will emphasize the history and the intersectionality of race, gender, and class. It will examine concepts of transnationalism, migration, and diaspora in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and the West Indies as it relates to Black women.
