Canada study

Since we have two topics this class, you can choose to do your lecture exercise on either heritage conservation or the North.

Option A: Heritage Conservation

Based on Prof.lecture, the assigned readings, and the video “Towers of Power,” this lecture exercise focuses on Canada’s twentieth-century residential heritage. Feel free to bring in your own experiences if applicable.

  1. What are the similarities and differences of low-rise and high-rise suburbs in terms of their character?
  2. Do these places have historical, social and/or environmental heritage significance? If we wish to conserve these places, what issues must we address?

Option B: The North

What are the key issues in the film “Martha of the North” for understanding the meaning of North for Canada? What does the film say about Canada’s relationship with Indigenous peoples?
