Jatinder Mann, Visiting Senior Research Fellow, KCL
The UCL-IA Canadian Studies events programme for the autumn term begins with the UK launch of Jatinder Mann’s book, The Search for a New National Identity: The Rise of Multiculturalism in Canada and Australia, 1890s-1970s.
This work explores the profound social, cultural, and political changes that affected the way in which Canadians and Australians defined themselves as a ‘people’ from the late nineteenth century to the 1970s.Taking as its central theme the way each country responded to the introduction of new migrants, the book asks a key historical question: why and how did multiculturalism replace Britishness as the defining idea of community for English-speaking Canada and Australia, and what does this say about their respective experiences of nationalism in the twentieth century?
