Description

Collection of 18 scholarly essays presented in 1996 at a conference at the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies, University of Toronto. One of the most significant papers is the one delivered by the late Deborah Doxtator. Her paper, Inclusive and Exclusive Perceptions of Difference: Native and Euro-Based Concepts of Time, History, and Change, makes the argument that Indigenous views of history can be important in the creation of the history of Canada at the time of the Renaissance. Other papers include the work of Olive P. Dickason, The Sixteenth-Century French Vision of Empire: The Other Side of Self-Determination; Conrad Heidenreich's The Beginning of French Exploration out of the St Lawrence Valley: Motives, Methods, and Changing Attitudes toward Native People; and Wallace Chafe's The Earliest European Encounters with Iroquoian Languages.
