This special issue comprises essays and interviews featuring a range of voices, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, reflecting on how the past — often contested — continues to shape our present and future. Reconciliation is a topic at the heart of contemporary debates about Canada’s history, during a time when scholarly and popular narratives of this country’s past are being challenged and rewritten. Canada’s landscape of historical commemoration is similarly in the throes of controversy, with statues being toppled and landmarks being renamed. All the while, how we educate young Canadians about the country’s past remains a hotly contested issue.
