Description

In a period characterized by growing social inequality, precarious work, the legacies of settler colonialism, and the emergence of new social movements, Change and Continuity presents innovative interdisciplinary research as a guide to understanding Canada's political economy and a contribution to progressive social change. Assessing the legacy of the Canadian political economy tradition — a broad body of social science research on power, inequality, and change in society — the essays in this volume offer insight into contemporary issues and chart new directions for future study. Chapters from both emerging and established scholars expand the boundaries of Canadian political economy research, seeking new understandings of the forces that shape society, the ensuing conflicts and contradictions, and the potential for social justice. Engaging with interconnected topics that include shifts in immigration policy, labour market restructuring, settler colonialism, the experiences of people with disabilities, and the revitalization of workers' movements, this collection builds upon and deepens critical analysis of Canadian society and considers its application to contexts beyond Canada. The latest in a series of related volumes on Canadian political economy, Change and Continuity explores the past, present, and potential futures of the discipline in a global context, offering insight into some of the most pressing issues of our time. Contributors include Greg Albo (York University), Hugh Armstrong (Carleton University), Pat Armstrong (York University), Simon Black (Brock University), Jacqueline Choiniere (York University), Wallace Clement (Carleton University), Tamara Daly (York University), Peter Graefe (McMaster University), Tobin LeBlanc Haley (Ryerson University), Rebecca Jane Hall (Queen's University), Stephen McBride (McMaster University), Suzanne Mills (McMaster University), Tanner Mirrlees (University of Ontario Institute of Technology), Stephanie Ross (McMaster University), Nandita Sharma (University of Hawaii at Manoa), Adrian Smith (Osgoode Hall Law School), Jim Stanford (Centre for Future Work), Steven Tufts (York University), Lesley J. Wood (York University).
