History 324 (101) Inventing Canada, 1840-1896
(In 2017W, HIST 324, 101 is cross-listed with CDST 350B, 101)
This course explores the history of pre-Confederation British North America and post-Confederation Canada during a period of profound change and conflict. Important themes will include gender and religious dynamics, shifting arrangements of political power, the social meanings of industrialization, and the influence of British imperialism and American republicanism. Evaluations will be based on a short primary source assignment, a research essay, a final examination, and participation in class discussions. Credit will not be granted for both HIST 324 or 326, if 326 was taken before 2007W.
