‘Canada Abroad’ (at a) crossroads

British Journal of Canadian Studies (2014), 27, (2), 217–228.

Abstract

The three co-authors are scholars whose age, gender and nationality differ, but who are united by one characteristic that brings their experiences together: researching and teaching Canadian studies (abroad). Employed at the English Department of Szczecin University in Poland, the three met in 2011 to officially form the Szczecin Canadian Studies Group (SCSG). The aim of this article is to present this mutual experience in greater detail, but also to put into a wider context the state of Canadian studies abroad after the closure of the Understanding Canada: Canadian Studies Program.
