This written document is a supplementary accompaniment to the thesis production entitled Suburban Nation. This documentary film (and the written component) explores the ways in which scholars and cultural observers have addressed the historical development of suburban spaces in North America and how those spaces are experienced by residents - particularly youth - in the Canadian context. While the suburb has often been depicted as something that is either wholly good or wholly bad, this work seeks to complicate such understandings by examining some of the contradictory ways in which suburbia is experienced and interpreted by adults and youths.
