The idea of "northerness" is central to our national
identity, yet few "southern" Canadians have an appreciation
of the historical development of Northern Canada. This lecture
course will introduce students to major themes in the Canadian
Northern history, from pre-contact to the creation of the territory
of Nunavut in 1999. The major themes will focus on evolving cultural,
political, socio-economic, and environmental histories.
