Anne Trépanier’s fourth-year 2011 Canadian Studies seminar students
Stemming out from the Capstone Seminar in Canadian Studies at Carleton University, this peer-reviewed journal focuses on Canadian identities. Being in the National Capital, as students in Canadian Studies, each author studied the birth of the NCC and its goals and decided to enter, as Canadianists, in the fields of Heritage, Public History, Socio-political analysis, and Contemporary political and Historical issues. Our course was organized around three main skills to achieve: library and archival research, organization of findings and diffusion. These skills were used to plan, organize and publish a museum activity and a scholarly journal article.
We are proud to launch this first issue. We sincerely hope that you will enjoy reading our modest contributions to a better understanding of Canada.
