|COURSE OBJECTIVES:||Tracing our literary landscape reveals that contemporary Canada is
constantly changing. This course will explore our shifting national
identity through a diversity of voices in poetry and prose. We will
follow the progression of Canadian literature from the contemporary
(post-1970) period forward, investigating questions of literary,
historical, and cultural significance – particularly those that have
given rise to a variety of regional literatures.
To achieve these goals, the course will combine lecture, discussion, and writing assignments. There will be one optional in-class response paper, one research essay, an in-class midterm exam, and a final examination. Please note that the research essay and the midterm must be completed in order to qualify to write the final exam.
All assigned readings must be completed before the scheduled class(es) to enable your participation in the discussion. Readings are indicated on the attached syllabus, but may be amended as required. Any changes will be announced in a preceding class and then posted on Moodle. Please note that if you are absent, it is your responsibility both to be informed about any schedule changes and to get notes from a colleague.
Required texts, assignments, and grade distributions may vary from one offering of this course to the next. Please consult the course instructor for up to date details.
