Seeing Ourselves: Exploring Race, Ethnicity and Culture
Carl E. James creates a dialogue with readers to probe the meaning of ethnicity, race, and culture, exploring how these concepts are understood both by individuals and in Canadian society as a whole. He explores how local, national, and international events of the past decade have brought questions about immigration, citizenship, and multiculturalism to the forefront, informing attitudes and influencing policies.
The varied perspectives, detailed analysis, and careful reflections presented in Seeing Ourselves will be invaluable to anyone seeking to understand the meaning, implications, and complexity of ethnic diversity in Canadian society.
Carl James is the Senior Advisor on Equity and Representation in the Office of the Vice President of Equity, People and Culture at York University. He is also the Jean Augustine Chair in Education, Community and Diaspora and a professor in the Faculty of Education.
