  • « Faire une bonne et fidèle servante » au Canada sous le
           régime français
    • Abstract: LE 22 OCTOBRE 1674, Jeanne Matou, 11 ans, est présentée par son père, un habitant de la rivière Saint-Charles, au notaire Romain Becquet à Québec. Conformément aux clauses du contrat d'engagement que ce dernier rédige, Jeanne doit partir travailler à Montréal durant les six prochaines années en qualité de servante au service de Jean-Baptiste Migeon, sieur de Bransat, avocat en parlement, et le « servir fidèlement et honnêtement » durant toute la durée de son service1. Ainsi en avait décidé son père. En contrepartie, Migeon promet de nourrir sa jeune employée, de la loger, de l'entretenir « en santé et en maladie », et de lui verser 30 livres pour chacune des trois premières années, puis 40 livres pour chacune des ...

  • "Our fathers fought for the British": Racial Discourses and Indigenous
           Allies in Upper Canada
    • Abstract: TWO CENTURIES AFTER the War of 1812, public discourses about Indigenous peoples' role in the conflict are revealing. In late 2012, in the opening months of the Idle No More movement for Indigenous rights and sovereignty, a narrative appeared at public actions and on websites that asserted the continuing relevance of Indigenous support in past Euro-Canadian wars. Signs at Winnipeg rallies and round dances in December 2012, for instance, cited Indigenous military aid in the War of 1812 as a reason for non-Indigenous Canadians to support Indigenous aspirations today. One sign, for instance, read, "1812: We fought for your rights, now fight for ours."1 Similarly, a website that promotes Anishinabemowin, the Ojibway ... Read More

  • Kin Keeping and Family Storytelling in Nineteenth-century French-Canadian
           Immigrant Letters: The Bergevin Corpus
    • Abstract: SOCIOLOGICAL SCHOLARSHIP on kin keeping and family narrative uses principally interviews with people alive today. Research on immigrant letters has concentrated on their historical, narrative content, either as a source of information about larger population movements or as a window into the individual, intimate experience of migration and acculturation. Work on family letters, particularly in France, has investigated correspondence as a network, a system whose essential obligation is its own affirmation and perpetuation, but largely stops short of the question of kin work and rejects its systematic gendering.This paper brings together these three areas of scholarship to analyse the construction and performance of ...

  • "Commend me the Yak": The Colombo Plan, the Inuit of Ungava, and
           'Developing' Canada's North
    • Abstract: AS 1953 DREW to a close, ambitious plans were afoot in Ottawa. With development assistance having emerged as a global phenomenon, officials in the Department of Northern Affairs and National Resources (DNANR) had grand visions of importing yaks from India to transform the lives of Inuit living in Quebec's Ungava region (Nunavik). Senior officials hoped to harness the Commonwealth Programme for Economic Assistance to South and Southeast Asia created three years prior—the Colombo Plan—to realize the scheme. Notions of developmental reciprocity informed bureaucratic discussions: Third World recipients of Canadian aid were to help Canada's Indigenous peoples, all under Ottawa's benevolent gaze. Engaging in some playful ... Read More

    • Abstract: IN 1955 THE SUPERVISOR of social workers for Canada's Indian Affairs Branch shared her thoughts regarding the impact and, to her mind, the clear problem of children born outside of legal marriage. "The seriousness of the illegitimacy problem," she explained, "is basically the degree of social and emotional damage to the mother . . . and also the degree that children are handicapped in growing up as useful citizens because of the circumstances of their birth." By contrast, in reserve communities, she argued, "the unmarried Indian mother and her child do not suffer the same damaging effects as those in similar circumstances in non-Indian communities. It is rarely that [she] is rejected by her family and turned away ... Read More

           L'implantation de la communauté hassidique des Tasher au cœur du Québec
           francophone et catholique (1962-1967)
    • Abstract: EN 1963, UNE communauté juive hassidique, les Tasher1, quitte Montréal pour s'établir en périphérie. C'était moins de dix ans après avoir rassemblé dans la ville une poignée de ses membres qui avaient échappé au génocide nazi. Les Tasher étaient issus d'une région du nord-est de la Hongrie où le hassidisme, mouvement dense sur les plans culturel et religieux, était un courant dominant au sein du judaïsme. Menées par leur rebbe Meshulim Feisch Lowy, chef spirituel et temporel du groupe, 13 familles se tournent vers la municipalité de Sainte-Thérèse-Ouest2, à 25 kilomètres au nord de la métropole québécoise. C'est surtout pour s'éloigner d'un climat moral jugé dégradant qu'ils choisissent de quitter la grande ville. ... Read More

           of Cyril Levitt and William Shaffir's book, The Riot at Christie Pits
           (1987)
    • Abstract: IT HAS BEEN 30 years since the 1987 publication of Cyril Levitt and William Shaffir's illuminating book, The Riot at Christie Pits.1 The work chronicles the events of August 16, 1933, when Toronto was the site of one of the most violent riots in Canadian history. In a climate of pervasive anti-semitism, and following weeks of hooligans hurling anti-Jewish epithets and brandishing swastika banners, young Jewish men retaliated after Nazi sympathisers unfurled a large swastika flag at an evening baseball game in Willowvale Park (otherwise known as Christie Pits). For the next six hours, thousands of male Jewish and gentile teenagers attacked each other in an unprecedented clash that injured scores on both sides. ... Read More

  • Cultural Turns and Trans/National Studies
    • Abstract: Both volumes under review share a common element: the relevance of anthropological studies in current cultural discourse and historical writing in particular. In her tour-de-force monograph Cultural Turns: New Orientations in the Study of Culture (CT), Doris Bachmann-Medick offers a wide and well-informed overview of the most recent developments in cultural studies and reflects on the turns in that field since the early 1980s. Her edited collection—The Trans/National Study of Culture (T/NSC)—offers a variety of case studies exemplifying the variety of cultural studies. Before analysing these two volumes, I would mention the growing and pervasive role of anthropology after about 1980. Anthropological studies have ... Read More

    • Abstract: There's a captivating photograph in the collection of the Bildarchiv Preußischer Kulturbesitz of the chemist Otto Hahn and the physicist Lise Meitner in their lab at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Chemistry in Berlin in 1913. Meitner looks on while Hahn records something with pen and paper. Behind them is a row of glass jars, neatly labelled. Many things are implicit in this image: the research partnership that would lead to the discovery of nuclear fission, Meitner's ground-breaking career and the belated recognition of her contributions to physics, as well as the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute itself, which sponsored their research, as it did the research at the Institute of Anthropology, Human Heredity and Eugenics ...

  • Reconcilable Differences: A History of Canada--US Relations par Stephen
           Azzi (review)
    • Abstract: In Reconcilable Differences, Stephen Azzi faced two challenges: writing a textbook, and writing a book on Canadian-American relations. These two goals pull in opposite directions. Texts are highly prescriptive, even formulaic: headings here, questions here. It's not an easy form to make palatable. And in this case, the task was to fit an amorphous subject into texty form.Canadian-American relations are simultaneously everything and nothing. They can be social, economic, intellectual, religious, labour, immigration, First Nations, political, imperial, or international. They touch every aspect of Canadian life. The trick is to fit all those categories, which add up to everything, into one matrix. Such is Azzi's skill ... Read More

  • Invisible Immigrants: The English in Canada since 1945 par Marilyn Barber
           and Murray Watson (review)
    • Abstract: Invisible Immigrants' greatest strength lies in its recounting of the multifaceted life experiences of the last major movement of English immigrants to Canada between 1945 and the mid-1970s. The English formed the largest national group—over half a million people—of the approximately four million immigrants who entered Canada in this period. From the decision to leave England to the struggles of settlement and adaptation to life, work, and community in Canada, the memories of over seventy English immigrants take centre stage. The authors deserve praise for not letting the "confused and contested state of theory" overwhelm or obscure immigrants' stories (p. 16).With their life-story approach, Barber and Watson build ...

Le Québec face à Pétain et à la collaboration, publié à compte d'auteur en 1994, et aussi à l'ouvrage d'Éric Amyot intitulé, Le Québec entre Pétain et de Gaulle, publié en 1999.

    • Abstract: The notion that the automobile transformed North American society over the course of the twentieth century comes as no surprise to denizens of lecture halls and readers of textbooks. The advent of the internal combustion engine and the roadways that allowed drivers to commute, vacation, date, and trade in the comfort of their own vehicles transformed work, leisure, courtship, commerce, and countless other activities.. Sometimes such travels opened up exciting new opportunities—a remote campsite far from home, for example. On other occasions, they resulted in frustration—perhaps bumper-to-bumper traffic on a Friday afternoon that delayed the start of the weekend. What united these disparate experiences, Ben Bradley ...

  • Skiing into Modernity: A Cultural and Environmental History par Andrew

    • Abstract: It is difficult to think of the Alps and not envision skiers schussing down well-manicured slopes, or quant alpine villages full of winter tourists. Such visions, as Andrew Denning explains in Skiing into Modernity: A Cultural and Environmental History, are products of what he terms "Alpine modernism." Centring the sport as part of an ongoing negotiation in Europeans' relationship with nature, from the late nineteenth century through the 1970s, Denning argues that skiing embodied modernist understandings of technology while providing an escape into nature from the increasingly industrialized and structured modern world.Like similar works on environmental and tourism history, Skiing into Modernity explores how ...

Drawing especially on the rich archives of the criminal courts, he explores the range of the custom's forms and meanings to examine what "les classes populaires ont utilisé comme moyens de se faire justice en marge des pouvoirs constitués" (p. 8). His volume is a welcome addition to the literature on popular justice and ably balances broad appeal with scholarly rigour.Chapters 1 and 2 trace the French and British origins of charivari and related practices and follow their selective transplantation into North America. Certain forms, such as ... Read More

  • Abortion Under Apartheid: Nationalism, Sexuality, and Women's Reproductive
           Rights in South Africa par Susanne M. Klausen (review)
    • Abstract: Abortion as a topic often brings out the worst in people, whether "worst" is measured by outright misogyny or simple callousness towards women's and girls' lives. The fact that poorer women and women of colour suffer disproportionately from lack of access to safe, state-funded abortion services adds an element of class and race contempt to the equation. As I write, this is manifest in the Trump administration's executive order to defund any organization currently receiving US support that provides abortion counselling, let alone abortion itself. This order threatens to create a surge of unsafe abortions and maternal deaths in the Global South and will wreak havoc on efforts to control population growth in Africa in ... Read More

  • Horse-and-Buggy-Genius: Listening to Mennonites Contest the Modern World

    • Abstract: If anyone who watched the CBC TV popular crime-drama Pure in winter 2017 came away with many questions, then this book is a must-read. Perhaps viewers with no questions, who took the show at face value, should read it too. Loewen's book focuses exactly on the two distinct branches of Mennonites that the drama conflates into one—the Old Order Mennonites of Swiss-Pennsylvania-German descent, and the Old Colony Mennonites of Dutch-Russian descent. Both of these historically ethnic branches display a continuum from "modern" to "anti-modern." Loewen uses the latter term to describe what might seem the most "conservative" of Mennonites, whom outsiders note for their agricultural work, use of horses and buggies, and plain ... Read More

  • Law, Debt, and Merchant Power. The Civil Courts of Eighteenth-Century
           Halifax par James Muir (review)
    • Abstract: Early in The Wealth of Nations (1776), Adam Smith attributes the division of labour to "a certain propensity in human nature . . . the propensity to truck, barter, and exchange one thing for another." In the then-new commercial port of Halifax, where such exchanges were based on credit rather than barter and where little else bound its small, fluctuating population together, the propensity to dispute the terms of those credit relations was a powerful corollary. The law offered the principal arena to adjudicate those disputes and allocated opportunities and costs across various litigation strategies. Economic exchange, then, was structured by the law.As James Muir notes in this refreshingly empirical study, "civil ... Read More

The editors of Dalit Studies, Ramnarayan Rawat and K. Satyanarayana, dwell on "Dalits as subjects of study and on Dalit studies as a location of marginality" (p. ix) and critical intervention in the larger field of Indian history. In their introduction, they highlight the significant contributions of their volume: first, the entry of "non-elite Dalit scholars" into the academy; second, the struggle for dignity and the shaping of new Dalit political ...

Thématiquement, cet ouvrage porte non seulement sur le saint fou byzantin (salos), mais sur deux autres formes de « folie » chrétienne, l'acceptation du martyre et l'ascèse.

  • Kouchibouguac: Removal, Resistance, and Remembrance at a Canadian National
           Park par Ronald Rudin (review)
    • Abstract: The creation of Kouchibouguac National Park in Kent County, New Brunswick, in the 1970s led to the removal of 1,200 local residents, the largest such dislocation in the history of Canada's national parks. The story gained national attention in large part because of resident Jackie Vautour's high-profile and militant refusal to vacate his land, where he remains to this day.In this well-written and well-researched study, Ronald Rudin explores why and how the relocation took place, how some residents resisted removal, and how people have interpreted and remembered the story over time. In doing so, he makes two main arguments. First, the best way to explain the state's management of park development and its relocation ... Read More

Most Indigenous visitors were in the metropolis because it was the seat of empire, where the interrogation and entertainment of first peoples abetted England's (later Great Britain's) "settler colonialism," in which European imperialists acquired Indigenous territory and jurisdiction over its inhabitants (pp. 15-16). The visitors often negotiated with imperial officials, even the reigning monarch, were exposed ... Read More

    • Abstract: In this engaging study of Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children (commonly referred to as "SickKids"), David Wright chronicles its growth from a tiny charitable effort to an international enterprise. Using the hospital's development as a lens, Wright interweaves institutional politics, medical practice, gender inequality, and changing perceptions of children, as well as the structure's physical development, into a satisfying historical narrative. The author recognizes its failings, yet presents a largely positive vision of its role in helping shape modern paediatric care (please note, the hospital underwrote the publication).Taking inspiration from London's pioneering children's hospital on Great Ormond Street. ...
