Summer Course @ Carleton: Focus on Ontario

Carleton University, Ottawa ON
Monday, May 2, 2016 (All day) to Friday, June 17, 2016 (All day)

Carleton University is offering a new online course to introduce students to the field of border studies. The course examines six themes: borders and history, borders and culture, borders and governance, borders and flows (migration, goods, information), borders and security, and borders and sustainability. The course draws on fascinating case studies that illustrate the current progressive and transformative challenges occurring in and around the borders of Canada, and in particular Ontario. The course material is delivered through a diversity of media (video-clips, power points with voice over, and readings). At the end of the course, students will convene for one week to participate in tutorial discussions at Carleton University and a class fieldtrip.

The course is directed toward senior undergraduate and graduate students, as well as government employees and other professionals working in relevant fields.

Registration Opens March 23 (degree students).

If you are not currently enrolled as a Carleton student but are interested in the course or have other questions about it, please contact Melissa Kelly at MelissaN.Kelly [at]
