George Elliott Clarke on teaching Black Canadian writing (Pt 15 of 32)

what do you teach well I specialize in African Canadian literature black Canadian writing it one prefers that and that means I’m dealing with writing produced by Canadians who come from the West Indies originally from Africa from the United States but also of course born and raised in Canada oh are you talking about race Oh more more women than men more White’s than people of color or black people to be precise yeah generally yeah I’ve got a good solid core of black students as well and students of color in the class and I’m I’m glad that a lot of white students are interested in Chinese Chinese Asian students I’ve had foreign graduate students come to U of T specifically to work with me some aspect of African Canadian literature I’ve had students from Peru from Germany from France who have come in and taken a term or two of independent study with me travel all the way here just to just to work with me on something or rather and and I’ve taught at Harvard as as my major international institution I’ve also done lecture tours in Italy and Germany
