The intention of this unit is to address the following issues: how do (nation) states define indigenous peoples? How do people get classified as indigenous or aboriginal? How has globalisation enhanced awareness of minority and human rights everywhere? The course will show how being indigenous is often a product of state politics, negotiation of identities between local, state and transnational pressure, and even of individual self-selection. We will re-examine debates over universal values versus cultural relativism, flexible citizenship and identity, and group versus individual identities.
