CAPITAL AND POWER: EXPLORING CANADA'S ROLE IN AN IMPERIALIST GLOBAL ORDER
Dr. Todd Gordon, York University, Political Science
Dr. Gordon exposes Canada's imperialist past and present, at home and across
the globe. He interweaves histories of indigenous dispossession in Canada
with the cold facts of Canadian capital's oppression of peoples in the
global South. He digs beneath the surface of Canada's image as global
peacekeeper and promoter of human rights, revealing the links between the
corporate pursuit of profit and Canadian foreign and domestic policy.
Drawing on examples from Colombia, the Congo, Sudan, Haiti and elsewhere, he
makes a passionate plea for greater critical attention to Canada's role in
the global order. Dr. Gordon teaches political science at York University in
Toronto. He is the author of the books: Imperialist Canada (Arbeiter Ring,
2010) and Cops, Crime and Capitalism: The Law-and-Order Agenda in Canada
