Migrating Multiculturalism: Representing Canadian Multiculturalism to International Audiences

Migrating Multiculturalism Poster

Mavis Reimer and Doris Wolf will be giving a presentation entitled “Migrating Multiculturalism: Representing Canadian Multiculturalism to International Audiences” to the UW Youth and Culture Research Cluster on Thursday, April 11 from 12:00 to 1:30 in 1L06.

Countries around the globe often hold up Canadian multiculturalism as an achievement to be emulated. Within the Canadian academy, however, multiculturalism has been subjected to thoroughgoing critiques and we tend to be highly skeptical about the successes of multiculturalism. What happens when we are invited to participate as scholars in discussions of multiculturalism in international contexts because of Canada’s reputation in this area? Please join us in a conversation about presenting and representing Canadian multicultural young people’s texts in contexts beyond Canada.

See the event poster.

All are welcome to attend.
