GEOG 225 | The Many Geographies of British Columbia

The place we now know as British Columbia has been shaped in numerous ways by Indigenous peoples, its physical characteristics, and various other interactions. Students will explore the deep Indigenous roots of this land as well as the emergence of British Columbia in the context of colonial interactions, the modern nation-state, and emerging concerns about social and economic sustainability in a global economy.

Themes such as boom and bust, inequalities, and resource extraction become particularly relevant in the Ts'msyen territory of what is now known as British Columbia.  Professor Joanne Nelson, Ts'msyen, will provide an Indigenous context to the many geographies of British Columbia.
