The Canadian Creative: Exploring And Questioning the Lyricality of the Nation-State

How might we radically re-imagine the relationship between art, culture and the nation-state through an intellectual excavation of the creative imagination? In this course, we will speak to various actors, musicians, artists, writers and other creatives about the ways their emotional and physical geographies – and in particular, their relationship to national identity – influence what they create. This 3-hour course will involve experimental writing in-class; conversations with creatives and course assignments that go beyond the traditional academic essay. Tap into your creative frontier and explore the poetics and the politics of your imagination.;
