In the 1970s some academics and creative writers at the University of Sherbrooke in Quebec developed a new approach to the study of Canadian literature in both English and French which went on to have a profound influence on Canadian literature programs and research across the country. These, once controversial propositions about comparative study are now taken for granted in university curricula. I will trace some specific links from the small Quebec University to Alberta and their effects on programs at Athabasca to this day.
