The Writing of Canadian Identity
This course is part of the following part-time on campus and/or online program(s):
Canadian identity is challenging to define, but depictions of our multicultural society are found and explored in our writing. This course explores the importance of writers' perceptions of Canada, how they promote their ideas through publishing, and how those published works affect Canadian society. Students are introduced to a wide range of writing with the dual aim of exploring the theme of Canadian identity while enhancing students' cultural and self-awareness. Through assigned readings, discussion, presentations and essay writing, students investigate the role of the artist in defining and shaping society.
Winter 2017: Section 586 is a hybrid course (a combination of on campus and online).
