On July 1st 2017, Canada will celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation. On this historic occasion, the French Association of Canadian Studies (AFEC), in conjunction with the Research Center on Anglophone Cultures (LARCA) of Université Paris Diderot and the Canadian Embassy in Paris, will hold a conference to explore the evolution of Canada and what defines it. This conference intents to favor the historical perspective of the longue durée, by examining not only what defines Canada in 2017, but by comparing this with the way it was defined in 1867, at the time of Confederation, as well as in 1967, at the time of the centennial. It also aims at a prospective dimension by reflecting on the elements that will make Canada a distinct nation in the future. To do so, the conference will be organized around three guiding lines that correspond to the values, the practices and the representations through which Canada is defined.
