Module assignments


Canada is often seen as a benign and benevolent country. Certain branches of Canadian literature have drawn this into question long before recent events that have reflected this stance. Matters of Canadian culture and literature will be considered from insider and outsider perspectives. Therefore, in this course we will discuss texts focussing on minorities, written by writers with a minority background and writers without it.
Topics such as immigration, the treatment of immigrant workers, but also the position of native Canadians within society, and LGBTQ+ topics, among others, will be discussed.

In order to obtain credits you will either have to write a thesis paragraph, do a moderation, or a presentation, as well as write an essay. Participation, regular attendance, and reading the texts will be expected.

Please purchase a copy of Sky Lee’s Disappearing Moon Café as well as Eden Robinson’s Monkey Beach.
A reader with relevant theoretical texts and short stories will be made available on digicampus.
