Description

This subject aims to provide students with a basic understanding of the history, politics, society and culture of Québec (Canada). It examines the history of Québec, with a particular focus on events since the Quiet Revolution and provides an overview of the economic and political development of Québec. Central themes in Québec society such as nationalism, independence movements, aboriginal issues and language are studied. Literature, cinema and other cultural works provide case studies in which these and other issues are examined. The subject thus introduces students to Québec's diversity and heterogeneity in regional, national, continental and international contexts. Students develop critical thinking and written communication skills relevant to the multidisciplinary nature of the subject.
