ITA233H1: Italian-Canadian Literature (formerly ITA233Y1)


The course will explore how notions of identity and (self)-representation emerge in literature by Canadian writers of Italian descent. Works by Nino Ricci, Pier Giorgio Di Cicco, Frank Paci, Mary Di Michele, Caterina Edwards and Gianna Patriarca will be examined to illustrate the critical evolution of the immigrant journey from its historical experience to its current branding. This course includes a component designed to enhance students' research experience. (Given in English)
