The 2017 IRTG Diversity’s international conference
Canada 150: Grappling with Diversity since 1867 offers an exploration of the past, present, and coming milestones that shape the ongoing Canadian experience: from its colonial inception, with a special focus on the point of view of the First Nations, to the mediation, translation and interplay of the numerous experiences that perpetuate and renew it, to Canada’s place in both North America and the globalized world.
The IRTG Diversity’s international conference not only aims at a better understanding of these milestones, but ensures a concrete enactment of one of the core enduring principles of our shared collective experiences: diversity. The scope is international, the outlook is interdisciplinary, and the objective is to provide a broad overview that maps Canada’s legacy both historically and today.
About the IRTG Diversity
Diversity is a central issue in current discussions about cultures and societies. Bringing together scholars and PhD students from Montréal, Saarbrücken, and Trier, the International Research Training Group pursues an innovative research program in the contested fields of diversity, multiculturalism, and transnationalism. They do so by examining paradigmatic changes and historical transformations in interpreting multicultural realities in North America (Québec and Canada in particular) and Europe (Germany and France in particular) since the 18th century.
