Thinking Historically for Canada's Future

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • SSHRC PG LOI|Stage 1 awarded 2016; Stage 2 not successful: Canada has long struggled with questions of national identity as a result of contested ground over the stories told about its past. Struggles over sovereignty by Quebec Francophones and Indigenous peoples, as well as the continued diversification of the population, mean that a new approach to history education is needed. Citizens face a level of political, social, and cultural complexity that demands, among other things, a solid grounding in the past. Understanding and responding to shared yet often-unacknowledged colonial histories is necessary for reconciliation, social justice, and judicious civic engagement of all Canadians. The proposed partnership will bring together various constituencies involved in history education including academic historians, history education scholars working in faculties of education, Indigenous scholars, graduate students, museum educators, teachers, ministries of education, policy makers, and local, provincial and national history/heritage organizations.
