Canadian Studies Reading Group


The Canadian Studies Reading Group invites students interested in all things Canada to join for readings and debates during the winter term.

We will meet every other week discuss topics such as:
Canada as postnational and/or settler colonial state
Canadian postcolonialism, bilingualism and multiculturalism
Motivs, tropes, and genres of Canadian literatures and culture, such as North American Indigenous Studies and First Nations, ecocriticism, pandemic literatures, feminist criticisms
