Course Descriptions: Fall 2014 - HTY 520: Canadian Historiography

Instructor:  Professor Jacques Ferland

Time:  Wednesday; 5:30 – 7:30 PM

Description:  If history has been a major source of national identity since the nineteenth century, how have historians grappled with definitions of nationhood in countries with different languages, unequal economic development and, consequentially, asymmetrical professional development between linguistic and racial groups? This course examines the Canadian historiographic corpus from the perspectives of four to five generations of English- and French-Canadian historians, their concepts of nationhood, respective societal environments, and separate professional institutions. Further attention is given to Native American history in Canadian historiography and the late emergence of First Nations’ members of our profession.
