A Fair Country? Canadian Protests and Progress After 1900
HIST 229
Fall 2021
Section: 01  

From hockey to healthcare, Canadians define themselves by debates over what makes a fair country. This class will explore Canada's 20th century as episodes of resistance in the service of greater equality. From labor movements to protests against (and participation in) global conflict; from women's rights and the welfare state to social justice and environmentalism; from French nationalism and Quebec separatism to the Quiet Revolution and domestic terrorism; from racism to Indigenous resilience. Looming in the background is the American leviathan, a constant threat to Canadian social and political culture but also a foil against which the country can measure itself.
