UTM110H5 Black Immigrant Experiences in Canadian Cities

UTM110H5: Black Immigrant Experiences in Canadian Cities

The 0.5 credit from this course can be used toward either your Humanities (HUM) or Social Science (SSC) distribution requirement. This course is offered in the Fall 2024 term (September-December).

This course will explore the settlement experiences of Black immigrants- most notably their experiences with exclusion and the way in which they have responded to these exclusionary experiences through transnational livelihoods and the establishment of formal institutions that serve their communities. The experience of this group has been examined by researchers from disciplines including geography, history and sociology and, as such, this course will also adopt a multidisciplinary approach to the analysis of these issues. 

This course offers students the chance to: 

  • Engage with literature and activities that allow for immersion into the real-life experiences of Black immigrants.
  • Develop a critical awareness about their own identities and the circumstances that shape Black immigrants' integration in major Canadian cities.

This course is suitable for students in any discipline who are interested in a deeper understanding of the settlement experiences of Black immigrants.

This utmONE First-Year Foundations course is taught by:

  • Dr. Janine Rose, Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream, Institute for the Study of University Pedagogy
