Narrative, Place and Identity in North America
This course examines the foundational fictions of Canadian, American and Mexican culture through a study of narrative, place and popular culture. Key themes will include tensions between ethnic, regional, and religious identities, urban and rural spaces, the relationship to land and place, and the encounter of European and First Nations peoples and world views. It considers the extent to which these historically parallel traditions converge to create a North American "New World" imaginary space.
