40. The Real Vimy: Remembrance and National Identity

40. Vimy: Remembrance and National Identity
Reading and Conversation
Tim Cook
with Duncan McDowall

Join historian Tim Cook and Queen’s University Historian Duncan McDowall as they talk about this legendary battle and its place in the Canadian national consciousness. How did Vimy, relatively insignificant in terms of the overall campaign, become enshrined in the nation's self-identity?  What part did imperialism, politics, or economics play? And how do we make sense of the enormous psychic toll on Canadians who fought there? As a symbol, Vimy allows us to talk about our history, the stories we tell about ourselves, and to reinterpret the legend for all Canadians one hundred years later.
