Introduction to Canadian Studies from Nordic and Baltic perspectives

Canada is often seen as a multicultural country with the recognition of the First Nations and the inclusion of bilingualism in its Constitution. With the introductory course on Canadian Studies, you will be able to reflect on its identity and literature.

The course “Introduction to Canadian Studies” is given during the summer of 2021 in collaboration with Tartu University, Vilnius University, Turku Academy, Kaunas University and the University of Latvia (Riga). It offers a broad view of Canadian society in comparison with the Nordic and Baltic countries. The course presents several aspects of Canada such as bilingualism, indigenous minorities, gender equality, cultural identity and literature.

The course is held in English and given in the form of seminars. You are expected to process the course literature in order to be able to actively participate in the discussions. During the course, you prepare an oral presentation and work on a written assignment that develops a special theme in the area.
