WHAT:  A one-day “mini” conference aimed at providing a venue where “experts” and interested community members can meet to examine important issues of the day in some depth and in a “user-friendly” atmosphere. 

The morning program will feature four U. of C. faculty members: Keynote Speaker, R. Douglas Francis, Professor Emeritus, Canadian history, and Panellists; Doreen Barrie, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Political Science; Tamara Seiler, Professor Emeritus, Canadian Studies, and Cora Voyageur, Professor, Dept. of Sociology.  The afternoon will be devoted to workshops on various topics related to Canadian identity.  

Throughout the day, there will be ample opportunity for questions and discussion.   

WHEN:  Saturday, November 4, 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. A light lunch will be provided.  

WHERE:  Main Hall, Rosedale Community Association, 901 11th Ave. N.W.

WHY: The advent in 2017 of Canada’s 150th year as a nation has provoked much debate over whether or not this is an occasion for celebration, or sombre reflection about the country’s sad colonial legacy related to Indigenous people. Moreover, a number of efforts to commemorate Canada’s 150th, e.g., CBC’s Canada: The Story of Us, have sparked anger over the controversial representation of various groups and regions. In this context, the seemingly passé topic of the nature of Canadian identity seems suddenly relevant again. CANADA 150: Exploring Canadian Identity will revisit this perennial topic from several perspectives, illuminating some of the ways that Canadian identity has evolved in the last half century.

COST: (Includes lunch) Members:  $15.00: Non-Members: $20:00

Registration Deadline: Tuesday, October 31, 2017
