Inventing Canada Inventer le Canada free pdf The essays investigate how Canada has pursued the construction of its national identity through symbolic cultural expressions. Analysing manifestations of Canada's cultural memory, the essays therefore engage in a search for the Canada of the mind. In particular, they turn to the fields of cultural and of literary studies to show how writers have projected an image of Canada as a desired space and have rendered the search for meaning within this space. En cette annee du quatrieme centenaire de la fondation de la ville de Quebec, le volume a pour objet de radiographier le concept de l'invention de la nation canadienne. Nous savons que la configuration nationale du Canada, ainsi que celle du Quebec, est loin d'etre acquise, et qu'il faut se demander dans quelle mesure ce concept en question releve d'une donnee historique ou bien plutot d'un travail imaginaire sur un ensemble culturel vaguement defini. Nous avons reuni les analyses de specialistes pour la plupart d'origine centre-europeenne afin de fournir des reponses adequates au fait litteraire et culturel de l'invention de la nation canadienne ou quebecoise."
