Critical Inquiries: A Reader in Studies of Canada
|Availability:||In stock (1)|
This book takes a bold, critical approach to Canadian studies, framing Canada as an ongoing colonial project. The contributors assess how policy programs, such as multiculturalism and national arts funding and cultural monuments and symbols, such as the Famous Five Monument, the Tunnels of Moose Jaw and Saskatchewan’s Centennial, are all shaped within this colonial matrix. Furthermore, the contributors in this collection argue that the making of Canada as an extension of British–European colonialism has celebrated whiteness and has subjugated racialized others to the dominant group’s economic, cultural and societal norms.
