Canadian Studies Upcoming Events
Next Colloquium
November 5, 2019
Dr. Christopher Sands, Johns Hopkins University
Narrow Path to a New NAFTA:
Will USMCA Pass in 2019, 2020, or Never?
The United States Mexico Canada Agreement was negotiated before the 2018 Mexican elections, then approved by the Mexican Congress. In 2019 Canadians went to the polls and re-elected Prime Minister Justin Trudeau whose Liberals are credited with managing relations with Washington and salvaging Canada’s market access to the United States and Mexico. Now, as the US Congress considers when to start legislative approval, will US elections in 2020 determine the fate of the USMCA? Johns Hopkins University’s Christopher Sands, Senior Research Professor and Director of the Hopkins Center for Canadian Studies at the Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington offers a perspective on what is new in the agreement and what it’s political prospects are as a third national election looms.

Catching Up With Dr. Shanahan
When reflecting on his experience at Cal, former Canadian Studies Hildebrand Fellow, Brendan Shanahan, recalls the unique and interdisciplinary atmosphere that the University provides. Dr. Shanahan received his PhD in U.S. History from UC Berkeley in 2018, and this spring was awarded the Immigration and Ethnic History Society’s annual Outstanding Dissertation Award for his dissertation, “Making Modern American Citizenship: Citizens, Aliens, and Rights.” Following this award and the birth of his first child, Dr. Shanahan began a postdoc position at Yale University with the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies and the Center for the Study of Representative Institutions. Dr. Shanahan explains his current research focuses on “legal, political, and popular disputes over the weight, meaning, and limits of (exclusive) American ‘citizenship rights’ from the late-19th to mid-20th century vis-à-vis the rights of noncitizens in the United States.” In addition to revising his award-winning dissertation for publication and working on several “spin-off” projects, Dr. Shanahan teaches upper-level seminars in immigration history and political and policy histories. This upcoming spring he is looking forward to teaching a course in comparative U.S-Canada political development. In September, the Canadian Studies Program caught up with Dr. Shanahan to hear about his current work and his experiences at Cal. Click here to read the full article.
