The group project provides opportunity for expression of personal engagement with the questions of national identity, alienation and patriotism that surround the course texts in the context of the Olympic Games institution this Term.
Analysing any media, social networking, or research sources of your choice, arrive at an understanding of Canadian partiotism or alientation and make a prescriptive presentation from this position.
Use some creative form--such as a blog, a social networking site, or a YouTube video--to present your study and conclusions on partiotism or alienation in light of the intensive government and media presentation of the Olympic Games.
