|58-2101/2 Representing Canada: An Interdisciplinary Introduction F(3-0)/W(3-0)|
An interdisciplinary introduction to Canadian Studies which examines the concepts, narratives, frameworks and images by and through which "Canada" has been represented, constructed and understood, including the interests which those representations serve. The first half of the course introduces students to the various approaches, methods and discourses whereby scholars in various social science and humanities disciplines construct and seek to understand various aspects of the Canadian experience. The second half of the course then concerns itself with application of these approaches and interpretations, organized around such topics as regionalism, Quebec, native peoples, gender, ethnicity, and Canada in North America. This is a two-semester course. When you select it you will be assigned to 58-2101 in the Fall and 58-2102 in the Winter semester. A grade will not be assigned to 58-2101 until 58-2102 has been completed.
