Course Descriptions: Spring 2014 - HTY 460: Modern Canada

Instructor:  Stefano Tijerina

Time:  Monday, Wednesday, and Friday; 11:00 – 11:50 am

Description:  This course focuses on the history of Canada for Confederation (1867) to the present.  It is designed to introduce students to the economic, political, and social developments that have shaped Canada both domestically and internationally.  Students will become familiarized with the events, people, and issues that impacted the development of the nation state since the post-Confederation period.  Particular attention will be placed on the bilateral relations with the United States and the relations with the rest of the Western Hemisphere.

Three underlying themes will be stressed throughout the course:  1) Canada’s shift from an East-West to a North-South foreign policy approach, and its international role as a member of the British Commonwealth and a power within the Western Hemisphere; 2) the search for nationalism as Canada transitioned from a dominion to a sovereign state; and 3) the social, political, and cultural debates that have emerged over the French/English national identity.
