Citizenship in a Connected Canada
Virtual Book Launch
Tuesday, December 8, 2020
at 13:00 ET
Join Dr. Elizabeth Dubois, Dr. Florian Martin-Bariteau, and many of the authors of Citizenship in a Connected Canada: A Research and Policy Agenda for a virtual book launch and learn about some of the most pressing research and policy agenda items facing Canada in our current digital context.
Citizenship has become digital. In Citizenship in a Connected Canada, Dr. Dubois and Dr. Martin-Bariteau bring together scholars, activists, and policymakers to build consensus around what a connected society means for Canada. This interdisciplinary edited collection offers insights on the state of citizenship in a digital context in Canada and proposes a research and policy agenda for a way forward.
The editors will begin by introducing the book and explaining why we need to know more about citizenship in a digital context. Authors from each of the three sections in the book will then summarize the key messages from their work. The conversation will feature scholars, activists, and policymakers who are dedicated to answering questions like: What does it mean to be a citizen in Canada in a digital context? and What are the implications of this digital setting for citizens and policymaking? They will also discuss the latest digital policy development in Canada.
There will be an opportunity for Q&A with the authors. Beyond the editors, the following authors will be in attendance: Kent Aitken, Jane Bailey, Megan Beretta, Jacquie Burkell, Amanda Clarke, Michael Geist, Alfred Hermida, Mike Morden, Marina Pavlovic, Jonathan W. Penney, Adelina Petit-Vouriot, Priscilla Regan, Teresa Scassa, Leslie Regan Shade, Valerie Steeves, and Mary-Lynn Young.
