2023-2024 CSES Courses

Instructions for Enrolling in 400-level Core Courses

400-level CSES/Equity Studies courses are generally small with high enrolment pressure.  As all CSES/Equity Studies Majors are required to complete a 400-level half course, we have changed the enrolment process to ensure that all students in this POSt have access to at least one 400-level CSES/Equity Studies half course. Instructions for enrolling in a 400-level CSES/Equity Studies core course can be found here.  Note:  enrolment in CSE442H1S, CSE469Y1Y, and CSE499H1S are by application. 

Application forms are here:  CSE442H1FCSE469Y1Y and CSE499H1S

CSES499H1S: Advanced Topics in Critical Studies in Equity and Solidarity: Pedagogies of Solidarity

Taking as a starting point a conception of pedagogy that centres relational encounters, this course seeks to consider the question of how to enter into relationships with others that seek to transform the very terms that define such relationships. The course explores how the concept of solidarity has been used to both explain the nature of social relationships between groups and individuals, as well as how it has been mobilized as a strategy for political work. In both counts, solidarity plays a key pedagogical role because it seeks to either sustain or challenge particular social arrangements. The course takes education and educational experience as a particular site for thinking through solidarity as both explanation and strategy, and considers a range of educational situations, including the classroom, to consider the complexities of solidarity as ethical encounters in pedagogical relations.
