Canadian Multicultural Literature

Class at Faculty of Arts |



The course discusses the concept of Canadian multiculturalism as one of the constitutive elements of the country's political, social and cultural character. In each session we will analyze a short theoretical text that contributes to the debate of multiculturalism in an important or - hopefully - interesting manner.The main focus, however, will be on concrete primary texts of fiction representative of the diversity and colourfullness of the Canadian literary scene. Examples will include texts by writers of Native Canadian, French Canadian, Jewish, Slavic or Asian origins (provided in English translations where necessary).
