ABST 1150: Global Indigenous Perspectives (Miranda-Barrios)


Welcome to the LibGuide for ABST 1150! This guide highlights important resources for ABST 1104, with special attention to research requirements for the Case Study Research Project.

Case Study Research Project

The Case Study Research Project asks you to pick an Indigenous Nation from any part of the globe, and outline the contributions/struggles/wins the Nation has had or is facing in a certain field (e.g. access to water, cultural appropriation).

Your Case Study is not simply a description of the Nation's experiences. You must apply your own analysis/ideas around the issues, with reference to at least two UNDRIP articles

Support your analysis with a minimum of three scholarly sources (e.g. scholarly books, peer-reviewed journal articles).
