Conference: Canada 150 years …more or less

Canada 150 Events

Hosted by the History of Education/History Education Research Group

We are very pleased to invite you to attend the Canada 150 years …more or less Conference to be held on Saturday, 14 October 2017, from 8:45 am to 4:00 pm at the College of Education, University of Saskatchewan.

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. 

This conference will be of interest to professional and community historians concerned with practical issues of inclusive representation, researchers in the social sciences and humanities, educators and teachers seeking innovative and anti-oppressive ways to teach about difficult histories, and members of the public working to make sense of an increasingly fractured world.
