Event Details

 

This paper looks at the current debate in Canadian historical circles on the nature of British Canadian identity at the turn of the century and is partly based on recent research undertaken at Queen’s University. Kingston, Ontario. This debate has been fuelled by Chris Champion’s book The Strange Demise of British Canada: The Liberals and Canadian Nationalism, 1964-1968 (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2010).The paper explores the development of French and British Canadian ideas of Canada and argues for a broad notion of Canadian nationalism.

Michael Böss is an Associate Professor at Aarhus University in Denmark and the Director of the university’s MatchPoints Seminar which involves editing a book series. He has had a very varied career including working as a radio producer for the Danish Broadcasting Corporation and he is a regular contributor to the Danish national daily Berlingske . In 1998, he established the Centre for Irish Studies at Aarhus University. In 2001, he founded the highly ranked Nordic Irish Studies Journal. In the 1990s, he served for four years as President of the Danish Association for American Studies, and, in the following decade, he was President of the European Federation for Associations and Centres of Irish Studies for another four years. He stepped down as Director of the Centre for Irish Studies in 2009 to become Director for the Canadian Studies Centre at Aarhus University. His current research interests focus on the development of Canadian nationalism since 1900.
