God Keep our Land - Lecture @ St. Jerome's University

 Topic: God Keep Our Land: Lecture @ St. Jerome's University
 Speaker:Myroslaw Tataryn, ThD

 
Post 9/11 North Americans have been saturated with talk of a "Clash of Civilizations," ostensibly arguing that we are culturally and religiously under siege. This lecture will compare the early 20th century rhetoric of nation building in Canada to the contemporary discussion and will demonstrate how little has changed. The myth of building a new and improved Britain in Canada , prior to World War I, targeted religious and ethnic minorities as "strangers at our gates"- that is, strangers who lacked the "correct" form of Christianity, reflected an "inferior" culture, and clearly were "uncivilized." This same myopia is reflected in today's anti-Muslim rhetoric.
