Dr. Jason Black, Fulbright Research Chair teaching course on social activism at Brock this winter

The Centre for Canadian Studies is thrilled to announce the Fulbright Research Chair in Canadian Studies.  Dr. Jason Black is a professor and Chair of Communication Studies at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte who will be on campus for the winter term.  He will be teaching CANA 3V92 Social Activism and Culture in Canada and the United States on Thursdays in D3.  This course is a cross-cultural study of social activism and its rhetorical functions in Canada and the United States.  Students will analyse how public communication texts and media representations such as speeches, manifestos, narratives, music, memoirs, and film reflect social change.  Case studies will be drawn from activism about race/ethnicity; Indigenous mascotting; gender and sexualities; and environmentalism. 

Students interested in registering for this course should do so as soon as possible as we expect it to fill quickly.
