A (Critical) Short History of Toronto (from TEDxToronto)

October 9, 2013 § Leave a comment

While this is a nicely produced short history of Toronto, I have to highlight how after the initial overview of some aboriginal communities from the region, the history of those founding nations is erased from the rest of the Toronto story.

The erasure of particular communities through the re/writing of history is a common mechanism for particular groups to hold power (in this case perhaps a broad sweeping patriarchal, postcolonial-imperialist and capitalist power, as bell hooks might say).

Digital and visual media, and popular culture, are powerful tools for the propagation of oppressive systems of dominance and difference.
