Canadian multicultural identities (lecture, Fall term)
The objective of the course is to enable students to learn about the peoples, and culture of Canada; to enlarge their capacity for understanding broader contextual analogies within the field of American studies and North American culture; to further their knowledge independently through critical thinking and the use of specific methods of study. Among the objectives of the course, empathy and the understanding, including the acceptance, of the so called “otherness” of different traditions, religions and cultures features strongly.
Taught by Dr. Krisztina Kodó

USA and Canada culture (lecture, Spring term)
The students are acquainted with the peoples, regions, symbols and culture of the USA and Canada. Special emphasis is placed on the field of cultural studies, including the traditions, everyday life and the knowledge typically acquainted with the USA and Canada. The course provides a basis for the understanding of the institutional system and the American and Canadian cultural heritage, the development of vocabulary relating to this field, as well as the foundation for later literary and linguistics studies.
