As Canada, with considerable expense, celebrates its sesquicentennial, it does so on land with continuous histories of many nations, each with particular ways of teaching and learning. This conference calls into question the official story of nationhood, acknowledging the uncertainty as to when Canada became a nation state, inquiring into who is included/excluded, as well as what is and might be commemorated.
Shaping Nationhood through:
- Commemoration and ‘nation building’
- History of Education
- Living Heritage
- Teaching Canadian History
- Recognition of Indigenous histories
Dr. Verna St. Denis keynote title: Indigenous People and a Politics of Commemoration
Dr. Sheelah McLean keynote title: “We built a life from nothing”: Myth Making and White Identity Construction
