Breaking out of the box: A non traditional decolonized toolkit for international study abroad and intercultural exchange.

This project tests a brand-new, decolonized approach to recruiting and preparing Indigenous and under-represented low-income visible minority students for a culturally relevant, industry focused, study abroad experience in Japan. It takes an integrative, thematic approach to increase the participation of targeted students through the cultural relevancy of the topic, a decolonized, asynchronous pedagogy and a planned and supported study abroad experience.

The project uses the Canadian fishing industry as a vehicle to explore issues of trans-pacific migration, indigenous sovereignty, ethnic and intercultural relations, and globalization.
