Social Justice 5030 Theories of Social Justice View Details
This course explores theories of social justice and equity, with a strong focus on Indigenous peoples and the north. It presents the main theoretical schools of thought in the field of social justice, and students will be asked to consider: what is social justice? what constitutes a just society? how is equity to be achieved in a culturally pluralistic society? how do these questions intersect with theoretical schools of race, gender, ability, colonization, Eurocentrism, and educational and economic opportunity? how do we promote a socially just society?

Social Justice 5090 Methods and Methodologies in Social Justice View Details
This course explores the methods and methodologies used in social justice studies, both qualitative and quantitative. It introduces students to the foundational concepts of doing research from the margins, particularly in ways that challenge Eurocentric modes of thought, truth, and evidence to position the researcher within the research process, and to take multiple modes of knowledge, including Indigenous knowledges, seriously. It will ask students to consider: what are the strengths and weaknesses of each method and methodology? whose voices have been traditionally silenced or obscured by Eurocentric definitions of knowledge, truth, and objectivity? how does a researcher determine the best methods and methodologies for a particular project? how does methodological decision-making impact on research outcomes? how is research embedded in extant socio-political structures, and what methods can be adopted to preform research in socially-just ways that produce socially-just outcomes, in particular when working with vulnerable groups such as Indigenous populations?
