About this Episode

This episode from Bàrbara Molas (York University) draws on her research on Canada's modern nation-building to discuss what she has termed 'white multiculturalism'. In this podcast, she uses this contradictory concept to describe a project led by (Continental) European immigrants to Canada who between 1934 and the late 1960s proposed the integration and 'amalgamation' of Christian white Canadians to create a superior 'ethnicity'. She further uses the term too to talk about European integration and Christian supremacy more broadly.
