Canadian History and Culture (KAJ/CAN)
Summer semester 2017
This course will examine some of the elements that come together to define that elusive concept called Canadian identity. The topics covered will include the impact of Canadian geography and history on Canadians' every-day life and imagination, attitudes toward the First Nations, English-French relations, immigration policy, and multiculturalism.
This course is worth three credits, and is run in conjunction with Dr Koy's course on Canadian Literature. Students have to pass both parts of this course to obtain the credits.
