Open to all undergraduate students. Offers an opportunity to acquire a longer-range understanding of a nation which is becoming increasingly important to the United States. Why 2 countries instead of 1? Free trade? A unified North American economic zone? Quebec separatism? Official multiculturalism? These and other pertinent issues are studied and discussed. Approaches the idea of Canada from a variety of past and present perspectives, breaks down its stereotypes, and celebrates its tremendous successes. Canada's evolution as a world power, subtle but well-respected, can be appreciated with an eye toward its longtime recognition that culture, language, and human rights are as important as political power or military force. Unscheduled. (PPDI)
