HIST 3821: Canadian Women’s History
Interested in gender history?

In HIST 3821: Canadian Women’s History, we will examine how gender has shaped the historical experiences of women and men in what is now Canada from before the arrival of Europeans to the twentieth century.  

We will look at the construction of gender identities through themes such as sexuality, regionalism, moral reform, immigration, racial/ethnic identity, indigeneity, class, and participation in the workforce.  

We will also examine the ways in which scholars have included gendered perspectives in historical works.  

This class will include both lectures and class discussions.  

Note: The course is listed in self-service as Contemporary Problems in Historical Perspective 

Instructor: Dr. Lianne Leddy
