97814426068901

Molly Kane talks to Gwen Schulman about the new book entitled “Canada and the third world: overlapping histories”, presented by the publisher as “a long overdue introduction to Canada’s historical relationship with the Third World. The book critically explores this relationship by asking four central questions: how can we understand the historical roots of Canada’s relations with the Third World? How have Canadians, individuals and institutions alike, practiced and imagined development? How can we integrate Canada into global histories of empire, decolonization, and development? And how should we understand the relationship between issues such as poverty, racism, gender equality, and community development in the First and Third World alike?”
