    Multiculturalism, modernity and citizenship in Canada

    Interdisciplinary Conference in Canadian Studies

    From the 1990s on, the Canadian multicultural discourse has increasingly focused on the concept of citizenship, which has in turn meant insisting more on the notion of unity and less on that of diversity. Should this be interpreted as a step backward from multiculturalism taken as an ideology and as a policy? From a European perspective, what lessons can be learnt at a time when a growing number of countries are adopting a multicultural terminology and the European Union needs to negotiate a balance between unity and diversity? Should the emergence of a modern form of citizenship be interpreted as the advent of hybrid identities or as a step towards a certain social and cultural anomy? What are then the prospects for multiple identities within a plural nation?
