|Excerpts from publications||History as subject of literature has been very popular in both English and French-speaking Canada, whose history is relatively short but particularly eventful. The popularity of historiographic metafiction in Canada seems to result from the multiculturalism of Canadian society. Writers of different ethnic origins show that macrohistorical structures are always evasive; there is no single history but a plurality of truths. They focus on microhistorical situations of everyday life, which allows them to see the past as part of the present and the present as part of the past.|
|Case study for the summer course||"Multicultural Canada: Postcolonialism in the Second
It introduces the versatile aspects of postcolonialism in the Canadian version, with a historical perspective, the First Nations'issue, Quebec, Americanisation (new colonisation) and the multicultural issues.
|Statement of interest||My field of research is Canadian literature in a postcolonial context. I am also very much interested in other postcolonial literatures (Australian, Indian, etc.) The topic of the course, interrogating the relation between postcolonial and postcommunist cultures is therefore of great interest to me, because it will allow me to draw comparisons between my region and the region that is the object of my research.|
