This multidisciplinary seminar builds on Introduction to Canada by focusing on Québec from a variety of perspectives. A distinct society with French as its dominant language and culture, Québec is unique within North America. Its geography, history, culture, economics, politics and place in the Canadian Confederation are explored, as well as Québec’s presence on the world stage as a member of the Francophonie. Throughout, the French influence on the rest of North America is examined. Prerequisite: CNS 101.
