About this Event

How is Racism Connected to Military Aggression: Lessons from World War II and the Cold War

Join us for a timely discussion about racism and the lessons we can draw from World War II history.

Our webinar speaker on this topic is Dr. John Price, Professor Emeritus at the University of Victoria.

Dr. Price is the author of Orienting Canada: Race, Empire and the Transpacific (Vancouver, UBC Press, 2011).

“ Focusing on imperial conflicts in the Pacific, Orienting Canada disrupts familiar narratives in Canadian history by tracing the relationship between racism and Canadian foreign policy. Grounded in transnationalism and anti-racist theory, this book reassess critical transpacific incidents, including Vancouver’s race riots in 1907, the Chinese head tax, the wars in the Pacific 1937 to 1945, the internment of Japanese Canadians, and Canada’s early intervention in Vietnam. Shocking effects of racism and war into the 1960s are tempered by stories of community resilience and transformation. As a transpacific lens on the past, Orienting Canada deflects Canada’s European gaze back onto itself to reveal images that both provoke and unsettle.”

This informative and provocative presentation by Dr. John Price on past and contemporary issues of racism will be on January 29, 2021 at 4:00-5:30 PM EST/1:00-2:30 PM PST/9:00-10:30 PM GMT via ZOOM and live-streamed on YouTube.
