Canada and Aboriginal Canada Today - Le Canada et le Canada autochtone aujourd’hui

Changing the Course of History - Changer le cours de l’histoire

Paul Martin

Dans la conférence prononcée comme récipiendaire de la médaille Symons en 2013, le très honorable Paul Martin, vingt-et-unième premier ministre du Canada, s’appuie sur tout le savoir et le vécu de sa remarquable carrière publique, afin d’expliquer le défi d’obtenir justice pour les peuples autochtones du Canada. Se penchant sur les racines historiques des enjeux actuels ainsi que les priorités contemporaines, monsieur Martin affirme que le progrès futur des peuples autochtones du Canada dépend de l’atteinte d’une forme de gouvernement autochtone autonome, accompagné d’un financement adéquat. Mais par-dessus tout, il lance un appel éloquent et urgent à l’action : les Canadiens et les Canadiennes doivent faire aujourd’hui preuve du même type d’imagination, de générosité et de courage qu’ont démontré les Pères de la Confédération lors de la Conférence de Charlottetown en 1864.

Le Canada et le Canada Autochtone aujourd’hui. Changer le cours de l’histoire est une contribution vitale au débat canadien sur le rôle des peuples autochtones au Canada d’aujourd’hui et de demain. C’est une lecture incontournable pour tous ceux et celles qui veulent mieux connaître les racines historiques des défis actuels et réfléchir sur les questions de justice et d’égalité pour les Autochtones du Canada aujourd’hui.

L’une des distinctions les plus prestigieuses au Canada, la médaille Symons est présentée chaque année par le Centre des arts de la Confédération, l’institution commémorative nationale établie en l’honneur des Pères de la Confédération, à un lauréat ayant contribué de façon exceptionnelle à la société canadienne.

------------

In his 2013 Symons Medal lecture, the Right Honourable Paul Martin, the twenty-first prime minister of Canada, brings to bear all the knowledge and experience of his remarkable public career to explain the challenge of achieving justice for the Aboriginal peoples of Canada. Exploring both historic roots and current priorities, Mr. Martin argues self-government is an essential condition for Canada’s Aboriginal peoples, but must be accompanied by adequate funding. Above all, he issues an urgent, eloquent and deeply informed call to action, calling on Canadians to exercise, today, the same kind of imagination, generosity and courage that the Fathers of Confederation showed, when they met at Charlottetown, in 1864.

Canada and Aboriginal Canada Today: Changing the Course of History is a vitally important contribution to the ongoing debate about the role of Canada’s aboriginal peoples in the Canada of today and tomorrow. It is essential reading for all Canadians who want to learn about the historic roots of current challenges, and to reflect upon the issues of justice and equality for Canada’s Aboriginal peoples today.

The Symons Medal, one of Canada’s most prestigious honours, is presented annually by the Confederation Centre of the Arts, Canada’s national memorial to the Fathers of Confederation, to honour persons who have made an exceptional and outstanding contribution to Canadian life.

The Canadian Modernists Meet

edited by Dean Irvine

The Canadian Modernists Meet is a collection of new critical essays on major and rediscovered Canadian writers of the early to mid-twentieth century. F.R. Scott's well-known poem 'The Canadian Authors Meet' sets the theme for the volume: a revisiting of English Canada's formative movements in modernist poetry, fiction, and drama. As did Scott's poem, Dean Irvine's collection raises questions - about modernism and antimodernism, nationalism and antinationalism, gender and class, originality and influence - that remain central to contemporary research on early to mid-twentieth-century English Canadian literature. The Canadian Modernists Meetis the first collection of its kind: a gathering of texts by literary critics, textual editors, biographers, literary historians, and art historians whose collective research contributes to the study of modernism in Canada. The collection stages a major reassessment of the origins and development of modernist literature in Canada, its relationship to international modernist literature, its regional variations, its gender and class inflections, and its connections to visual art, architecture, and film. It presents a range of scholarly perspectives, drawing upon the multidisciplinarity that characterizes the international field of modernist studies.

In The Case for Centralized Federalism, an array of experts condemns the federal government’s submissiveness in its dealings with the provinces and calls for a renewed federal assertiveness.

The Case for Decentralized Federalism

edited by Ruth Hubbard & Gilles Paquet

The Case for Decentralized Federalism and its sister volume The Case for Centralized Federalism are the outcome of the Federalism Redux Project, created to stimulate a serious and useful conversation on federalism in Canada. They provide the vocabulary and arguments needed to articulate the case for a centralized or a decentralized Canadian federalism.

The Case for Decentralized Federalism brings together experts who believe decentralized federalism is the optimal arrangement for governing the contextual diversity and cultural pluralism in Canada. Using different approaches, they argue that by dividing the work of public governance among different levels of government, it is easier to address the needs and aspirations of the diverse groups that make up Canada.

Ce que la rivière nous procurait

Archéologie et histoire du réservoir de l’Eastmain 1

Pierre Bibeau

Entre 2002 et 2005, des recherches archéologiques préventives y ont été menées dans le cadre des études environnementales initiées par la Société d’énergie de la Baie James et d’un programme sur l’archéologie et le patrimoine culturel prévu par une convention avec le peuple cri. Elles ont été réalisées par des équipes d’archéologues, géographes et ethnologues grâce à une collaboration remarquable entre des chercheurs d’Arkéos inc., le consultant retenu, et de l’Administration régionale crie.

Outre des volets d’enregistrement du savoir traditionnel, de formation de jeunes Cris et de diffusion des connaissances acquises, les recherches aux abords de la rivière Eastmain ont mené à la mise au jour de 158 sites couvrant cinq millénaires d’occupation humaine.

Les 18 contributions de cet ouvrage abordent autant d’angles de discussion relatifs au milieu naturel et à l’histoire culturelle qu’aux vestiges immobiliers et mobiliers.

Changing the Terms examines stimulating links that are currently being forged between linguistics, literature and cultural theory. In doing so, the authors probe complex sequences of intercultural contact, fusion and breach. The impact that history and politics have had on the role of translation in the evolution of literary and cultural relations is investigated in fascinating detail.
