BA or BSc (120 credit hour) Combined Honours in Canadian Studies - The Idea of Canada: Cultural and Literary Perspectives CANA 2002   The Idea of Canada: Cultural and Literary Perspectives
CREDIT HOURS: 3
This course employs an interdisciplinary approach to focus on selected themes in Canadian history and society. Beginning with the premise that a nation is fundamentally a “narration,” it asks: What sorts of stories do Canadians tell about themselves? Thus the course is centered on important texts - novels, poems, films, songs, and political documents - that relate formative events in Canadian history and that point to new, sometimes contested, directions for the future. Themes may include, but are not restricted to: First Nation's history and culture; multiculturalism; wilderness; the north; regional identity; and foreign policy.
NOTES: Course is open to first-year students
