Quèbec & Maine


Québécois and Acadian Identity of Place

2023 Cancelled

Explore two distinct Francophone cultures prevalent in Canada and the northeastern United States. As a mandatory part of this Spring II course, we will explore several key geographic areas where the Québécois and the Acadians evolved from early colonial settlements as distinct cultural groups. Led by Dr. Jenifer Branton-Desris, we will visit Maine, Nova Scotia, and Québec province’s Lac St-Jean region, Montréal, and Québec. From hiking to museums; from indigenous relationships to contemporary global rapport; from lobster to poutine, we will discover how the space we are in influences our culture and perceptions of self.
