This episode of “Right Rising” from Barbara Molas of York University draws on her research on Canada’s modern nation-building to discuss what she has termed “white multiculturalism.”
In this podcast, she uses this contradictory concept to describe a project led by (continental) European immigrants to Canada who, between 1934 and the late 1960s, proposed the integration and “amalgamation” of Christian white Canadians to create a superior “ethnicity.” Molas further uses the term to also talk about European integration and Christian supremacy more broadly.
