Sovereign Screens

Aboriginal Media on the Canadian West Coast

Kristin L. Dowell

While Indigenous media have gained increasing prominence around the world, the vibrant Aboriginal media world on the Canadian West Coast has received little scholarly attention. As the first ethnography of the Aboriginal media community in Vancouver, Sovereign Screens reveals the various social forces shaping Aboriginal media production including community media organizations and avant-garde art centers, as well as the national spaces of cultural policy and media institutions.

Kristin L. Dowell uses the concept of visual sovereignty to examine the practices, forms, and meanings through which Aboriginal filmmakers tell their individual stories and those of their Aboriginal nations and the intertribal urban communities in which they work. She explores the ongoing debates within the community about what constitutes Aboriginal media, how this work intervenes in the national Canadian mediascape, and how filmmakers use technology in a wide range of genres—including experimental media—to recuperate cultural traditions and reimagine Aboriginal kinship and sociality.  Analyzing the interactive relations between this social community and the media forms it produces, Sovereign Screens offers new insights into the on-screen and off-screen impacts of Aboriginal media.

Tableau d'avancement

Petite ethnographie interprétative d'un certain Canada français

Gilles Paquet

Ce tableau d’avancement examine le Canada français de la dernière moitié du XXe siècle et propose quelques repères utiles, souligne certains enlisements, avancées et retards, et cherche à comprendre son évolution malaisée à travers trois grandes perspectives : celle de chefs politiques qui l’ont orienté, celle d’intellectuels influents qui l’ont interprété, et celle de certaines institutions qui en ont révélé la dynamique. Le fil rouge qui lie ces vignettes et sert de fil conducteur est l’ombre de la Révolution tranquille qui a brouillé la vue de bien des observateurs. L’auteur est d’accord avec Gilles Vigneault quand il dit « Nous avons mal regardé. Nous avons mal écouté ». Il propose ici une autre manière de voir, une autre forme d’écoute.

To Serve Canada

A History of the Royal Military College of Canada

Richard A. Preston

During the four decades following the Second World War, the Royal Military College of Canada has adapted to the need to produce professional career officers by evolving into an academic centre of excellence and one of the country's leading universities. Along the way, it has responded to the challenges of service integration and unification, bilingualism, the emergence of Collège militaire royal and Royal Roads Military College, the employment of women in non-traditional roles, Canada's changing cultural make-up, and the rapid pace of technological change. In a society in which the precepts of military service are increasingly remote, the continued competition for entrance into RMC speaks of its resilience as a centre of learning and leadership.

Tom Symons

A Canadian Life

Edited by Ralph Heintzman

Tom Symons: A Canadian Life is a compelling portrait of one of Canada’s pre-eminent educational and cultural statesmen of the twentieth century. An outstanding public figure, Symons was a leader in many areas of Canadian life, including as the founding president of Trent University, as a pioneer in Canadian and Aboriginal studies, as an architect of national unity and French-language education in Ontario, as a champion of human rights, and as the chief policy advisor to the federal Progressive Conservative party in the 1960s and 1970s.

The volume’s contributors are as remarkable as its subject. They include Madam Justice Rosalie Silberman Abella of the Supreme Court of Canada; the Honourable Tom McMillan, former federal Minister of the Environment; the Honourable Charles Beer, former Ontario Cabinet Minister; Ivan Fellegi, former Chief Statistician of Canada; John Fraser, one of Canada’s most distinguished journalists; and Denis Smith, award-winning biographer of John Diefenbaker, among others.

Tom Symons: A Canadian Life is a study in leadership. It brings to light the unique human and personal qualities that allowed Symons to lead in such a wide range of areas and to exercise such deep and lasting influence on so many Canadian institutions -- contributions that continue to be meaningful and relevant for Canada today.

Vatican II

Expériences canadiennes – Canadian experiences

Sous la direction de/Edited by Michael Attridge, Catherine E. Clifford et/and Gilles Routhier

Le deuxième concile du Vatican (1961-1965) fut l’un des événements religieux les plus importants du vingtième siècle. Au Canada, il coïncida avec une période de changements culturels et sociétaux sans précédent, entraînant chez les évêques catholiques canadiens un réexamen de la place et de la mission de l’Église dans le monde. Pendant quatre ans, les évêques catholiques canadiens se réunirent avec leurs collègues de partout dans le monde pour réfléchir aux questions urgentes qui se posaient à l’Église et en débattre. Ce livre bilingue étudie l’interprétation et la réception de Vatican II au Canada, analysant diverses questions, dont le rôle des médias, les réactions des autres chrétiens, les contributions des participants canadiens, l’impact du Concile sur la pratique religieuse et sa contribution à la progression du dialogue interreligieux.

The Second Vatican Council (1961-1965) was one of the most significant religious events of the twentieth-century. In Canada, it was part of a moment of unprecedented cultural and societal change, causing Canadian Catholics to reexamine the church’s place and mission in the world. For four years, Canadian Catholic bishops met with their peers from around the globe to reflect on and debate the pressing issues facing the church. This bilingual volume explores the interpretation and reception of Vatican II in Canada, looking at many issues including the role of the media, the reactions of other Christians, the contributions of Canadian participants, the council’s impact on religious practice and its contribution to the growth of inter-religious dialogue.

Vice et corruption à Montréal

1892-1970

C’était l'époque de Montréal, ville ouverte, de Montréal, la flamboyante. Les maisons de jeu et les loteries illégales fourmillaient. Pendant que les magnats du crime organisé s’enrichissaient, la ville de Montréal peinait à boucler son budget. Confrontée à d’importants problèmes financiers, qui s’accentueront dramatiquement au cours de la crise économique des années 1930, la métropole dut graduellement faire preuve d’inventivité en matière de fiscalité. La légalisation des jeux de hasard et d’argent représenta rapidement un enjeu important pour la municipalité. Après quatre décennies de luttes, le jeu sera finalement légalisé. C’est à partir de l’analyse d’archives municipales, juridiques et journalistiques que Magaly Brodeur lève le voile sur l’époque de la prohibition des jeux de hasard et d’argent au Canada. Elle retrace dans son ouvrage le parcours ­tortueux ayant mené à la modification de la législation sur le jeu. Grâce à cette étude originale, elle apporte un éclairage nouveau sur plusieurs débats contemporains, tels que le rôle de l’État dans la régulation et le management des jeux de hasard et d’argent, la corruption et la lutte contre le crime organisé, les relations entre les divers paliers de gouverne­ment ainsi que l’épineuse question du financement des dépenses publiques. Un voyage dans le temps au cœur de Montréal n’aura jamais été d’une actualité aussi frappante.

Voyageur

Grace Lee Nute

The Voyageur is the authoritative account of a unique and colorful group of men whose exploits, songs, and customs comprise an enduring legacy. French Canadians who guided and paddled the canoes of explorers and fur traders, the voyageurs were experts at traversing the treacherous rapids and dangerous open waters of the canoe routes from Quebec and Montreal to the regions bordering the Great Lakes and on to the Mackenzie and Columbia Rivers.

Whence They Came

Deportation from Canada 1900 - 1935

Barbara Roberts, Foreword by Irving Abella

Until recently, immigration policy was largely in the hands of a small group of bureaucrats, who strove desperately to fend off “offensive” peoples. Barbara Roberts explores these government officials, showing how they not only kept the doors closed but also managed to find a way to get rid of some of those who managed to break through their carefully guarded barriers. Robert’s important book explores a dark history with an honest and objective style.

A Year Inland

The Journal of a Hudson’s Bay Company Winterer

Anthony Henday, a young Hudson’s Bay Company employee, set out from York Factory in June 1754 to winter with “trading Indians” along the Saskatchewan River. He adapted willingly and easily to their way of life; he also kept a journal in which he described the plains region and took note of rival French traders’ success at their inland posts. A copy of Henday’s journal was immediately sent to the company directors in London. They rewarded Henday handsomely although they were uncertain where he had travelled, what groups he had met on the plains, and what success he had in opposing rival French traders. Since then, uncertainty about Henday’s year inland has increased. The original journal disappeared; only four copies, dating from 1755 to about 1782, are extant. Each text differs from the other three; the differences range from variant spellings to word choice to contradictory statements on vital questions. All four copies are the work of a company clerk, later factor, named Andrew Graham, who used them to support his own views on HBC trading policies. Twentieth-century scholars have based their claims for Henday’s importance as an explorer, trader and observer of Native cultures on a poorly edited transcript of the 1782 text. They have been unaware or careless of the journal’s textual ambiguity. A Year Inland presents all four copies for the first time, together with contextual notes and a commentary that reassesses the journal’s information on plains geography, people and trade.
