ENGL 1903 engages students directly in reading work by indigenous authors. Students will read texts outside of class as well as read them aloud to each other in class. We will listen to lectures on youtube, podcasts, and guests. That’s the reading part of the “Reading and Responding” phrase in the course title.

        Along with a better understanding of the social, political, and creative realities of indigenous people in  Canada, students of 1903 will finish the course able to recognize some typical genres of literature – fiction, creative non-fiction, non-fiction, poetry, script, etc. – as well as beginning to see how those distinctions often blur.
