Canada has been a transnational country from its inception: founded on the ideas of Métis identities, forged by the metropolis-colony relationship, and modernized under the cross-boundary flow of American goods and capital. The revival of transnationalism as a widely respected lens of scholarly research in manifest fields provides us with very useful multidisciplinary bridges to study both past and contemporary Canada. In the context of growing globalization, the perspective of transnationalism of the nation-state raises important questions about overlapping (real or imagined) affiliations of individuals, communities, corporations, and social movements.
The conference aims to bring present a range of interdisciplinary perspectives from literature, history, economic relations, political issues and social movements, to environmental issues.
