Can you connect your past experiences with your new knowledge of colonial eugenics? Investigate how those past experiences shape the present? Create a location-based expression of this learning for a project.
What educational institutions have you attended and how were they named? What lands are they on? Who were the spaces designed for?
If possible, research an organization in your own community that counters colonial eugenics. If there isn’t one, can you propose a vision for one? Discuss how this imagined or real organization relates to the material in this course;
