Scope and content

Prof. Russell taught several courses in political science at both the undergraduate and graduate level at the University of Toronto beginning with his appointment as lecturer in 1958. Additionally, he taught courses outside the University at institutions such as the Royal Canadian Air Force College (1964-1968) and Makerere University College in Uganda, as well as through the Learning to Live in Retirement courses. This series contains correspondence with students as well as lecture notes, course outlines, reading lists, and correspondence with University administration and co-instructors such as Bob Rae. Of particular interest may be POL 299Y, a research directed seminar conducted in 1995-1996 relating to Prof. Russell’s research on the Mabo case for his book Recognizing Aboriginal Title: The Mabo Case and Indigenous Resistance to English-Settler Colonialism (2006).
