Cultural and Literary Representations of Montréal
1.0 Credit

Hours per week:
  • Lecture/Discussion: 3

This course focuses on Montréal and how works or art reflect its changing representations throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. It provides a wider scope on the cultural, linguistic, and social landscape of the most important French- speaking city in North America, while paying attention to marginalized realities that often remain unseen in main touristic attractions. Topics of analysis include linguistic tensions between French and English, urban poverty, immigration, queerness, Indigeneity, and elitist vs popular culture, among others, all while being on location.
