The Last of the Mohicans (HUM303/455)

The 1920 silent version of The Last of the Mohicans, directed by Maurice Tourneur, is available at the internet archive: http://archive.org/details/last_of_the_mohicans_1920

 

The 1936 (sound) version of the film is available on youtube:

As is the 1992 version (with Arabic subtitles):

Note that all of these films diverge significantly from JF Cooper’s novel and are in no way a substitute for your reading.

Quebec Student Movement (HUM415)

Someone in class asked about the outcome of the student movement in Quebec. Here’s an opinion piece at the Guardian by Richard Seymour on the influence of that movement on recent provincial elections:

So this is how it’s done. Students in Quebec, in rebellion against their government over tuition fees, have scored an amazing victory in the province’s general elections.

The Liberal government led by Jean Charest, which ran on a law-and-order platform against the students, has been defeated. Its plans to implement an 82% tuition fee increase are shredded for now, and the harsh emergency legislation it passed to quell the upsurge is history. Charest is resigning from politics.
