Description

Dans un pays où la géographie culturelle est en perpétuelle évolution, il est souvent difficile d’identifier et de caractériser les attributs spécifiques qui distinguent le Canada. Ce recueil a pour objectif d’aborder trois thèmes facilitant cette tâche : l’histoire, les identités sociales et nationales, et les cultures multiples du pays. S’appuyant sur plusieurs textes portant sur le Canada dans toute sa diversité, les auteurs visent à traiter des diverses identités nationales minoritaires, en portant une attention particulière aux études autochtones, aux immigrants et aux francophones hors Québec. Écrit par des experts dans plusieurs domaines, ce livre présente les principaux fondements des études canadiennes pour les étudiants de premier cycle.
This book is published in French.

Editorial Reviews

« the authoritativeness and accessibility of this particular anthology should appeal to university teachers interested in new syntheses and new scholarship, and to university students interested in accessible, dynamic approaches to Canadian topics. … indispensible. This anthology takes French-speaking Canada as its particular point of reference for discussing a broad range of issues and questions of more immediate interest to francophones… Each chapter effectively introduces and offers an overview of key questions and detables in a number of areas… The anthology’s inclusion of contemporary perspectives and aspects of tyouth culture promises to generate lively discussion in the university classroom...

"...especially forceful and coherent" "...each of these essays is first rate” “I heartily wish that an English language, equivalent introductory textbook of this quality and appeal were available for use in English-language first-year courses in Canadian Studies." » http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/histoire_sociale_social_history/v046/46.92.lacombe.html

« Cet ouvrage offre aux lecteurs une variété de thèmes, de sujets et de perspectives sur les particularités de l’expérience canadienne. (Il) offre aux étudiants une solide connaissance de base sur les questions entourant la politique canadienne. (…) Cet ouvrage montre brillamment la diversité et la complexité des enjeux de la société canadienne. » – Gilbert McLaughlin, Francophonies d’Amérique, no 36, p. 189

"the authoritativeness and accessibility of this particular anthology should appeal to university teachers interested in new syntheses and new scholarship, and to university students interested in accessible, dynamic approaches to Canadian topics. Those enrolled in the increasingly popular French-language Canadian Studies courses at the University of Ottawa stand to benefit the most from this volume, but bilingual undergraduates in Canadian Studies courses taught in English no less than their counterparts in a number of French-language programmes would also find it indispensable.”
