SOCIAL SCIENCES 1SS3 - Inquiry in the Social Sciences: This Is(n't) America

Welcome

Welcome to the Social Sciences 1SS3 CO6: This Is(n't) America Research Guide. The goal of this guide is to help you develop effective research questions, teach you how to critically analyze scholarly sources as well as how to properly cite these sources.

Land Acknowledgement

McMaster University stands on the traditional territory shared between the Haudenosaunee confederacy and the Anishinabe nations. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties, is within the lands protected by the “Dish With One Spoon” wampum agreement and is directly adjacent to Haldiman Treaty territory.

We must acknowledge a debt to those who were here before us, and recognize our responsibility, as guests, to respect and honour the intimate relationship Indigenous peoples have to this land.
