Politics and Society in Contemporary Québec

This course examines the sources of contemporary Québécois identity in fiction, film, theatre and non-fiction. It explores both the legacy of Québec's distinctive historical trajectory and recent political, economic, and social developments in the province, along with their impact on public policy. As well, it examines Québec's relations with the rest of Canada, the situation of Francophones outside of Québec, and Québec's aspirations to be an actor in the international arena.

NO315 is open to all 3rd and 4th year Laurier students. The course is required for students pursuing a joint-major honours program in North American Studies in the Canadian Studies stream and for those pursuing a Canadian Studies minor.

In 2012/13, the course is offered in the winter term. The course is taught by Dr. Brian Tanguay.

Exclusions: CA201, NO210/PO201
