Canadian Language Museum Exhibit
The Patrick Power Library will soon be playing host to a special exhibition entitled, A Tapestry of Voices: Celebrating Canada’s Languages.
This country’s oral and written histories reflect the many aboriginal and immigrant languages which have found a home here. This exhibit, on loan from the Canadian Language Museum, will pay homage to the diverse linguistic traditions which make up Canada’s cultural fabric.
Contemporary issues such as the usage and preservation of endangered languages will also be explored.
The exhibit will run August 1 – September 8 and you’ll be able to find it on the library’s main floor, near the stairs and elevator.
This is a joint effort on the part of the Library and the Saint Mary’s Faculty of Arts Centre for the Interdisciplinary Study of Culture.
