Quebec Studies : This course is an introduction to the ideas and approaches that scholars have used and developed to study Quebec. It will familiarize students with some of the foremost issues which have shaped Quebec historically and continue to influence contemporary life. Employing an interdisciplinary focus, QCST 200 examines changing notions about territory, identity, language, citizenship and belonging. The complexity and diversity of Quebec (11 Aboriginal nations, multilingual, multiethnic and religious communities, minority status within Canada and much more) will also be explored from a comparative perspective to identify characteristics that Quebec shares with other nations and those that are different.
