Race and Immigration in "Multicultural Canada": Myths and Histories

This week Radio Bandung moves from the global to the local to revise the myths and confront the histories of race and immigration in Canada. What does Canadian history look like when you acknowledge its roots as a settler colony? What role has immigration played in defining its national narrative? How has race been a factor in immigration policy? What is the history of Canadian race and immigration policy and politics? Dr. Barrington Walker of Queen's University's History Department will join us for a thorough exploration of these issues.

Dr. Walker, http://www.queensu.ca/history/People/Faculty/Walker.htm, is author of a forthcoming collection of documents on race and immigration in Canada.

Oh Canada!
