Migration, Race & Empire: Canada and the Transpacific
Examines the intersections between race and imperialism in the Transpacific from 1840 to decolonization and offers possibilities for community-based, action research. Explores how the Transpacific experience marked Victoria, Canada and the Pacific Coast and how Canadian 'whiteness' was constructed in reaction to indigeneity and Asian migration. Looks at how the Canadian state helped construct a global Anglo-Saxon alliance which has shaped the modern world.
