This session will address issues related to the production of Canadian national and cultural identity and Canadianness. Through what methods is Canadianness produced? Through what examples or instances can we see Canadianness and its production at work and play? The session is open to a broad array of possible conceptualizations of the topic: papers related to nationalism, the state, politics, culture and cultural practices, media and identity, consumption, pleasure, sports, and Canadian institution are welcome.
