Course Descriptions: Fall 2014 - HTY 459: Colonial Canada

Instructor:  Professor Jacques Ferland

Time:  Monday, Wednesday, and Friday; 10:00 – 10:50 AM

Description:  This course traces the evolution and development of Canada from the sixteenth century to the 1860s. It is designed to offer a different perspective on early North American history by paying close attention to French policies and institutions, the emergence of Acadian and French-Canadian communities and identities, and the roles of Native Americans in the “founding” and early development of Canada. Along with its emphasis on different “founding peoples,” their contributions and their interaction, the course addresses how the colonial fragments of present-day Canada were eventually drawn together, first by conquest, then by rebellions, and finally by confederation.
