We ask critical questions
Internationally-acclaimed essayist and travel writer Pico Iyer observed during a recent visit to the program, “Canada is being reconstructed daily.” But how is it being reconstructed? With what aims? Who is included? Who is excluded? These are the kinds of critical questions that are addressed and passionately debated in the Canadian Studies program.
