Investigates the contested legacies of British colonisation on Canada’s Atlantic coastEngages with the legacy of British colonisation in Atlantic Canada across three sectionsSituates the Scottish experience within process of British colonisation, challenging the tendency to omit the Scots from critical explorations of the colonisation process in this regionExposes the reader to a range of experiences from across the four Atlantic Provinces, which will encourage more exciting new researchChapters are grouped in three main sections: Dispossession and Settlement; Religion and Identity; Reappraising MemoryThis collection offers new perspectives on the legacy of British colonisation by concentrating on Atlantic Canada (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island), a region that was pivotal to safeguarding Britain’s imperial ambitions, between 1750 and 1930. New and established researchers from Canada, Scotland and the United States engage with the core themes of migration, dispossession, religion, identity, and commemoration in a way that diverges markedly from existing scholarship. The research shines much-needed light on groups traditionally excluded from Britain’s broader imperial narrative, highlighting the indigenous experience and the presence and agency of slaves, free people of colour and religious minorities.
