The paper is composed of two sub-essays dealing with the experience of Canadian women in Canada, relating to its settlement. The first question deals with the question of racialization and the creation of the other, both with negative and valorized stereotypes. The second question answers a broad course question regarding the background of Terra Nullius to the readings.
From the Paper:"There are various structural reasons behind the emergence of racism. It is a process that combines a variety of factors such as an inherent human ethnocentrism, fear of the other and economic structures, to name a few. As Frantz Fanon pointed out, racialization and the creation of the Other is a complementary process. As much as people are the products of their environments, they also create them. The oppressor and the oppressed ultimately both adopt the identities that are given to them, and contribute to shaping the system they are a part of."
