Public Lecture - A Canadian Culture Born on Foreign Shores

November 30, 2020
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Virtual

Without reference to any other country, how would you define the culture of Canada? Some turn to mixtures such as multiculturalism, trans-culturalism, or inter-culturalism, but before long these turn into evasions when their proponents realize that they cannot invoke a fusion to describe combined elements that remain undefined. Others insist on defining Canadian culture by what it is not; only the invocation of foreign characteristics, generally presented in a derogatory manner, can lead to a proper recitation of what is ours.

It is the duty of all immigrants to change the countries in which they find themselves. By doing so, they can develop culture for the benefit of citizens who have not taken the time to consider the places in which they are born. Students from other countries will learn language, laws, and quotidian customs; almost all do so without giving it much thought. Meanwhile, most Canadian students continually deprive themselves of opportunities to learn languages, social practices, and methods of thinking and communicating that could vastly improve their lives. Dr. Marco Katz endeavours a style of teaching that helps immigrants create, and citizens accept, new ways of living.
