Contesting Clio's Craft: New Directions and Debates in Canadian History -- Edited by Christopher Dummitt and Michael Dawson
This book offers innovative thoughts on present and future approaches to the study of the Canadian past. Moving beyond the political vs. social history debates that have dominated the field since the 1970s, these essays suggest novel questions and approaches while delving into recently overlooked subjects. The authors place a particular emphasis on international, transnational, and comparative approaches to the past. Essays cover such topics as the Atlantic World, oral history, postcolonialism, public history, historical periodization, Canada's place in the British Empire, and French-English relations. The art of history as a discipline and practice is also discussed.A must read for Canadian historians,"Contesting Clio's Craft" will also appeal to international scholars interested in these issues and curious about the contribution that Canadian history has made to the broader history of the Americas. Contributors include Michael Dawson (St. Thomas University), Michel Ducharme (University of British Columbia), Christopher Dummitt (Trent University), Magda Fahrni (Universite du Quebec a Montreal) Catherine Gidney (St. Thomas University), Steven High (Concordia University), Adele Perry (University of Manitoba), Katie Pickles (University of Canterbury), and Andrew Smith (Laurentian University).
