Download or read book 150 Years of Canada written by Ursula Lehmkuhl and published by Waxmann Verlag. This book was released on 2020 with total page 254 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: On July 1, 2017, Canada celebrated the 150th anniversary of Confederation. The nation-wide festivities prompted ambiguous reactions and contradictory responses since they officially proclaimed to celebrate 'what it means to be Canadian.' Drawing on the analytical perspectives of Diversity Studies, this fifth volume of the 'Diversity / Diversité / Diversität' series explores the repercussions of 'Canada 150's' focus on identity. The contributions touch upon issues of Canada's French and English dualism; of its settler colonial past and present and the role of Indigenous Peoples in Canada's identity narrative; of Canada's religious, cultural, ethnic and racial diversity; and of the challenge of forging a 'Canadian' identity. The authors analyze these and other problems arising from the tensions between identity and diversity by empirically addressing topics such as multicultural memories, Canadian literary and political discourses, Métis history, Canada's Indigenous peoples, Canada's official federal discourse on language and culture, and Canada's evolving citizenship regimes.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: British Canada at 150 Years: 1867-2017 explores the formation of Canada and its British Heritage. It includes over 25 Frontier Era black and white photographs and lists many important places by Province and Territory that would appeal to readers or visitors who are interested in Canada's heritage. After Mike lived in the Prairie Provinces where he collected photographs from the archives of Indian, Inuit and the early pioneers’ ways of life, he wanted to explore the strong British connection to the heritage of Canada. The book explains that there are 6 key stages of commitment and enterprise that have been noted throughout the Frontier Era, which resulted in the making of Canada into a nation. These include visionaries, investors, frontiersmen and women, First Nations guides, pioneers and business innovators.While the focus is on significant and interesting stories about Canada, there is also a strong recognition in most of the chapters of the role that people born in Britain and Ireland had in the growth of the second largest country in the world, which was accomplished in cold and harsh frontier conditions which are not experienced by many other places.
