YCISS Afternoon Seminar Series: Patricia Molloy

Oct 16, 2012, 1pm-2:30pm

Messed-Up Moments in Canada/US Relations and Myths of Canadian Benevolence, Patricia Molloy’s new book provides an inter-disciplinary examination of contentious events both within and beyond Canada, their relationship to, and impact on, Canada/US relations, as well as Canadian political and cultural identity both before and after 9/11. 

The presentation, titled "Canada/US and Other Unfriendly Relations" examines conceptual issues of war and warfare, sovereignty and violence, multiculturalism, citizenship and identity, human rights and international law. Molloy draws on key theorists in a range of disciplines including sociology, anthropology, international relations, philosophy, Canadian studies, cultural studies and critical race theory, and gives a close analysis of how myths of Canadian benevolence are circulated in Canadian and American media, from mainstream news to popular television, film and the Internet.
