This course explores the development of racial discourses from the colonial settings of New France and the British Empire in Northern North America to the end of the first period of mass-immigration at the turn of the 20th century. This course covers a wide range of topics from Native-newcomer relations, slavery, anti-Irish sentiment and the dispersal of the Metis to the reception and treatment of non-British immigrants from Europe and Asia.
