Seminar in Regional and Cultural Studies

This seminar will begin with a review of the concepts of region and regional and cultural studies from an interdisciplinary perspective, then teach students both theoretical and methodological skills helpful to the study of environmental, human, economic, sociological, and political regional themes. Examples and illustrations will be drawn primarily from the region of northeastern Ontario. The course will examine the question of regional study in ways that are of relevance to other regions of the province, the country, and world. Seminar presentations will be made by students, followed by discussion. Students will be given selected readings and be called upon to develop critical analyses of a given theme (chosen by students in consultation with faculty responsible for the seminar). Students will produce a research paper. cr 3
