In this Episode of On Mass we interview Tyler A. Shipley who is a Professor of Society, Culture and Commerce in the Department of Liberal Studies at Humber College to discuss his newest book, "Canada in the World: Settler Capitalism and Colonial Imagination".
Book description by Fernwood Publishing:
"Canada in the World begins by arguing that the colonial relations with Indigenous peoples represent the first example of foreign policy, and demonstrates how these relations became a foundational and existential element of the new state. Colonialism—the project to establish settler capitalism in North America and the ideological assumption that Europeans were more advanced and thus deserved to conquer the Indigenous people—says Shipley, lives at the very heart of Canada."
