Cultural Marginality and the Environment: Environmental Risk and Indigenous Populations

This course offers a sociological approach to a critical examination of the link between marginality and the likelihood of exposure to environmental risk in indigenous populations both locally in Northeastern Ontario, and more broadly in a Canadian context. This investigation, drawn across time and place, will contextualize definitions, systems of belief, knowledge production, and organizational relationships between communities at risk and resource industries.
