History 261

History of Canada since 1867

Course details

HIST 261 is an introductory survey course, designed to familiarize students with the major events and themes in the social, political, economic, and intellectual history of post-Confederation Canada. Beyond establishing the basic outline of how Canada developed in this period, special importance in the course is the portrayal of the experiences of various groups of Canadians from 1867 into the 1980s and beyond; consequently, discussions of race, gender, and class affiliation are emphasized. The course will also highlight where historians have disagreed in their interpretations of various historic events and developments. History 261 is of value to a wide range of students, including those who have an interest in or a desire to broaden their understanding of Canada's past, and those seeking a foundation for further studies in the discipline of history.
