The Canadian Historical Review Issue 104.1 Launch
Join University of Toronto Press at Congress 2023 in Toronto to celebrate the launch of The Canadian Historical Review 104.1!
This issue of The Canadian Historical Review features excellent new research on Canadian history from scholars across disciplines. Timothy Clarke advances existing scholarship on Indigenous veterans by highlighting the experiences of Indigenous peoples who remained on reserves during war times and their involvement in the political arena. Karen Dubinsky’s research considers Canada’s global relations, exploring the dynamic between Canada and Cuba in the 1970s, when Canadian professors taught engineering students in Cuba to develop the country’s engineering capacities. Steven High traces the influence of the closure of Iron Ore Company mines on a town in northern Quebec in 1982 and the connection between the settler-colonial state and deindustrialization. Kaitlin Findlay, Trevor Wideman, and Yasmin Amaratunga explore the role of property in twentieth-century notions of citizenship through the lens of a Japanese Canadian family’s wartime dispossession. Finally, George Colpitts delves into the world of polar bears, using critical anthropomorphism to study how polar bears in a Quebec zoo became objects of public interest in the interwar period.
