This course provides an examination of modern Canadian military history in the 20th century by focusing on central topics such as international relations, militarization and modern politics, and examining the most relevant works. The course offers an in-depth study of relevant historiography and debates in the field. The aim is to focus on reading, discussing relevant work, writing short papers and providing an oral presentation. This seminar is useful for students interested in Canadian studies with a particular focus on international and military history. Central questions will be how military interactions with other states shaped Canada’s political and social development, and what role and place has wars and conflicts in Canadian history. Special attention will be dedicated to Canada’s evolving relationships with the United Kingdom and the United States. We will also look at Canada’s growing role in the international community (i.e. Commonwealth, the League of Nations, United Nations, NATO, etc.) between the Boer War and the War in Afghanistan. International aspects will be emphasized in this course. Students are encouraged to obtain a broader understanding of Canadian history in an international/military framework. At the end of the course, participants should be capable of critically discussing the merits of different approaches and debates within the field of 20th-century Canadian military history.
