Canadian Difference project ignites conversation in a series of Globe & Mail columns

When the new School for the Study of Canada was launched at Trent in the fall, one of its main goals was to not only profile Trent’s long-standing leadership in interdisciplinary teaching and research expertise, but also to engage students (and all Canadians!) in broad ranging projects and dialogues about our nation.

That conversation has started with a prominent essay series in The Globe and Mail, written by William A. Macdonald, one of the philanthropic leaders (together with William R.K. Innes) so is working with Trent University’s Canadian Studies Department on the innovative Canadian Difference Project. The project marks the creation of an unprecedented online conversation about Canada, and who we are as a nation, as we move closer to Canada’s milestone 150th anniversary.
