We are delighted to announce that Arthur J. Ray’s Aboriginal Rights Claims and the Making and Remaking of History has won the 2017 Canada Prize in the Humanities and Social Science!
From the jury’s citation: “Arthur J. Ray’s masterful study is based on three decades of experience in academic research and in courtrooms as an expert witness in the litigation of aboriginal rights and treaty claims in Canada. Contrasting native peoples’ forms of transmitting history with that of academic disciplines like Law, History, and Archaeology, his work illustrates the profound discord between historical evidence based on robust oral traditions and that grounded in the documentary records of European societies.”
Congratulations as well to Mylène Bédard whose book Écrire en temps d’insurrections : Pratiques épistolaires et usages de la presse chez les femmes patriotes (1830-1840) (Presses de l’Université de Montréal) won the Canada Prize in the French language category.
The prizes, each valued at $5,000, will be presented at a ceremony during the 2017 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences at Ryerson University on Sunday, May 28.
Congratulations once again to Arthur J. Ray on this wonderful achievement!
