Aboriginal Visual Culture in Canada
The image of "the Native" has historically been used in western popular culture and media as a device of social and political control designed to marginalize, romanticize and assimilate indigenous cultures. This course will examine the historical misrepresentation of Aboriginal people and culture, as well how Aboriginal artists and cultural producers have subverted, critiqued, challenged and changed the perception of Aboriginal people through the media of film and photography.
