AUIND 367 - The Fur Trade


★ 3 (fi 6) (either term, 0-3s-0) A seminar examining the history of the fur trade with a particular focus on Canada. Far from being a political history course, this seminar examines the social and cultural aspects of the fur trade from the pre-contact period to the present in its attempt to answer questions such as the role of the environment, how perceptions of the environment and ecological relations changed and more recently the relationship between the fur trade, environmental/conservation movements and neocolonialism. Credit may be obtained for only one of AUIND 367 and 467.
