Why I’m doing history, irrespective of having a career:
Studying past behaviors allows ‘educated guesses’ about why people are doing what they are doing in the present and even about what will happen as an outcome of what people are doing now.
N. Hall, “meme-spoof” (1 December 2013)
canadianhistory n.0 is a virtual archive of various texts that I have found or generated in the course of studying Canadian history and developing a context for understanding Canada today: as a state-defined and geographically delimited country, and as a complex collectivity of human beings attempting to live with a multitude of ever varying conceptions of what living in Canada ought to be like. This archive is virtual not only because it is electronic and web dependent, but because the material stored here is subject to change. I’m mildly dyslexic, so corrections to spelling and dates are ongoing.
