The project seeks to survey a selection of course materials in literature and linguistics courses offered in the Department of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics in order to identify, enhance, and create course materials focusing on aspects of diaspora, internationalization and indigeneity. A primary goal of the project is to develop strategies that can be used to highlight the importance of linking cultures, languages and literatures in a cross-cultural and multilingual framework so that students taught in such courses can turn into responsible global citizens. A further emphasis is an investigation of the ways, recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Committee (2016) on educating Canadian and international students about Aboriginal/Indigenous peoples and their histories are or can be incorporated into the curricula of language, linguistics and culture programs. In this endeavor, the project seeks to identify shared questions that can be incorporated into courses taught across the department.
