This activity aims to create a permanent exchange network of research between Canadian and Spanish universities investing in Canadian Studies, involving both faculty and students. A Canadian and a Spanish team collaborated to organize a seminar about the research theme and are currently exploring the possibility of future research collaborations. The team members share the conviction that both written and visual cultural manifestations are fertile places to trace problems and possibilities for epistemological dialogue. They set out to explore how imaginative writing and the multiple intersections of literature and film, literature and media, or literature and the visual challenge the Euro-Canadian canon. Special attention will be drawn to the efflorescence of literary writing by Indigenous and diasporic writers in Canada over the past twenty years, which questions the epistemological foundations of the Euro-Canadian canon.
