education icon

The Association for Canadian Studies in German-Speaking Countries is offering an online course on “Multicultural Ideology in Canadian Children’s Literature” for the first time. It will be taught within the framework of its successful program of Virtual Canadian Studies. The course is open to undergraduate as well as graduate students enrolled at any university worldwide (the language of instruction will be English) and will thus offer a great opportunity to participate in an international class and discuss literature from different perspectives. Participants can earn 3 to 7 credit points in this course and – upon successful completion – they will receive a certificate from the Association for Canadian Studies in German-Speaking Countries stating credit points and percentage, which their home universities have to validate in their own system. Registration deadline is April 23; the course will start on May 3 and continue for 12 weeks.
