Introduction to Canadian Studies from Nordic and Baltic perspectives

  • 3 credits

The Centre for Canadian studies has the pleasure to announce the creation of a summer course on Canadian studies. This course of three ECTS will be given in English at Stockholm University during August 2021.
The course deals with several themes related to the history, culture and literature of Canadian society. It also addresses the aspects of official bilingualism in Canada and assists the students to discuss notions that are especially relevant in Canadian studies. The course further focuses on the challenges that Canada faces in the 21st century: multiculturalism and immigration, the role of indigenous peoples in present-day Canada, gender inequality, specific regions of Canada (such as Québec), and cultural identity. The relations between the Nordic countries and Baltic countries on one side and Canada on the other, will also be dealt with in the course.
