Ethnic elites and Canadian identity : Japanese, Ukrainians, and Scots, 1919-1971 by Aya Fujiwara( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 978 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ethnic elites, the influential business owners, teachers, and newspaper editors within distinct ethnic communities play an important role as self-appointed mediators between their communities and mainstream societies. In Ethnic Elites and Canadian Identity, Aya Fujiwara examines the roles of Japanese, Ukrainian, and Scottish elites during the transition of Canadian identity from Anglo-conformity to ethnic pluralism. By comparing the strategies and discourses used by each community, including rhetoric, myths, collective memories, and symbols, she reveals how prewar community leaders were driving forces in the development of multiculturalism policy

Girls, texts, cultures( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book focuses on girls and girlhoods, texts for and about girls, and the cultural contexts that shape girls' experience. It brings together scholars from girls' studies and children's literature, fields that have traditionally conducted their research separately, and the collaboration showcases the breadth and complexity of girl-related studies. Contributors from disciplines such as sociology, literature, education, and gender studies combine these disciplinary approaches in novel ways with insights from international studies, postcolonial studies, game studies, and other fields. Several of the authors engage in activist and policy-development work around girls who experience poverty and marginalization. Each essay is concerned in one way or another with the politics of girlhood as they manifest in national and cultural contexts, in the everyday practices of girls, and in textual ideologies and agendas. In contemporary Western societies girls and girlhood function to some degree as markers of cultural reproduction and change. The essays in this book proceed from the assumption that girls are active participants in the production of texts and cultural forms; they offer accounts of the diversity of girls' experience and complex significances of texts by, for, and about girls."--Publisher's description
Sustaining the West : cultural responses to Canadian environments by Liza Piper( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Western Canada’s natural environment faces intensifying threats from industrialization in agriculture and resource development, social and cultural complicity in these destructive practices, and most recently the negative effects of global climate change. The complex nature of the problems being addressed calls for productive interdisciplinary solutions. In this book, arts and humanities scholars and literary and visual artists tackle these pressing environmental issues in provocative and transformative ways. Their commitment to environmental causes emerges through the fields of environmental history, environmental and ecocriticism, ecofeminism, ecoart, ecopoetry, and environmental journalism. This indispensable and timely resource constitutes a sustained cross-pollinating conversation across the environmental humanities about forms of representation and activism that enable ecological knowledge and ethical action on behalf of Western Canadian environments, yet have global reach. Among the developments in the contributors’ construction of environmental knowledge are a focus on the power of sentiment in linking people to the fate of nature, and the need to decolonize social and environmental relations and assumptions in the West

An Ethic of Mutual Respect : the Covenant Chain and Aboriginal-Crown Relations by Bruce Morito( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the course of a century, until the late 1700s, the British Crown, the Iroquois, and other Aboriginal groups of eastern North America developed an alliance and treaty system that came to be known as the Covenant Chain. In An Ethic of Mutual Respect, Bruce Morito offers a philosophical interrogation of the predominant reading of the historical record, overturning assumptions and demonstrating the relevance of the Covenant Chain to the current First Nations--Crown relationship. By examining the forms of expression contained in colonial documents, the Record of Indian Affairs, and related materials, Morito locates the values and moral commitments that underpinned the parties' strategies for negotiation and reconciliation. What becomes apparent is that these interactions developed an ethic of mutually recognized respect that was coherent and neither culturally nor historically bound. This ethic, Morito argues, remains relevant to current debates over Aboriginal and treaty rights as they pertain to the British Crown tradition. Real change is possible if the focus can be shifted from piecemeal legal and political disputes to the development of an intercultural ethic based on trust, respect, and solidarity

Dispersed but Not Destroyed : a History of the Seventeenth-Century Wendat People by Kathryn Magee Labelle( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Situated within the area stretching from Georgian Bay in the north to Lake Simcoe in the east (also known as Wendake), the Wendat Confederacy flourished for two hundred years. By the mid-seventeenth century, however, Wendat society was under attack. Disease and warfare plagued the community, culminating in a series of Iroquois assaults that led to the dispersal of the Wendat people in 1649. Yet the Wendat did not disappear, as many historians have maintained. In Dispersed but Not Destroyed, Kathryn Magee Labelle examines the creation of a Wendat diaspora in the wake of the Iroquois attacks. By focusing the historical lens on the dispersal and its aftermath, she extends the seventeenth-century Wendat narrative. In the latter half of the century, Wendat leaders continued to appear at councils, trade negotiations, and diplomatic ventures -- including the Great Peace of Montreal in 1701 -- relying on established customs of accountability and consensus. Women also continued to assert their authority during this time, guiding their communities toward paths of cultural continuity and accommodation. Through tactics such as this, the power of the Wendat Confederacy and their unique identity was maintained. Turning the story of Wendat conquest on its head, this book demonstrates the resiliency of the Wendat people and writes a new chapter in North American history."--Publisher's website
Sporting gender : women athletes and celebrity-making during China's national crisis, 1931-45 by Yunxiang Gao( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Author Gao (history, Ryerson University) is the first to cover the rise to fame of Chinese female athletes in the early part of the twentieth century. From the Japanese-engineered Mukden Incident of 1931 to the end of WWII, a sense of impending war affected Chinese culture, which spurred Communists and Nationalists alike to promote strengthening of the country's citizens' bodies through tiyu (physical education, sports, and physical culture)in their quest to build a strong, militant nation. This was coupled with the modernizing and liberating of women after the revolution of 1911. The author uses the lives of leading women athletes as windows into the contemporary culture and the meaning of gender, sports, and nation at the time of the national crisis. She aims to address in each chapter the common themes of personal fates and changes in gender, the meaning of sports accomplishments, media influence, fashion, and state control
