Cutrara, Samantha – University of British Columbia Press, 2020
We are all our history. Yet in Canadian classrooms, students are often left questioning how they can study a past that does not reflect their present.

Carr-Stewart, Sheila, Ed. – University of British Columbia Press, 2019
In 1867, Canada's federal government became responsible for the education of Indigenous peoples: Status Indians and some Métis would attend schools on reserves; non-Status Indians and some Métis would attend provincial schools.

Cowin, Robert – University of British Columbia Press, 2018

Henry, Frances; Dua, Enakshi; James, Carl E.; Kobayashi, Audrey; Li, Peter; Ramos, Howard; Smith, Malinda S. – University of British Columbia Press, 2017
The university is often regarded as a bastion of liberal democracy where equity and diversity are promoted and racism does not exist. In reality, the university still excludes many people and is a site of racialization that is subtle, complex, and sophisticated. While some studies do point to the persistence of systemic barriers to equity and…

Hayday, Matthew – University of British Columbia Press, 2015
Since the 1960s, bilingualism has become a defining aspect of Canadian identity. And yet, fifty years after the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism was formed and with over forty years of federal government funding and supports for second-language education, relatively few English Canadians speak or choose to speak French. What…
