Canadian Studies checked in with Cal Bears Ice Hockey coach Jeff Slusarz. Coach Slusarz has completed his 5-year term as Cal’s head coach, after an impressive Pac-8 playoff run this year. Cal has three Canadian players, coach Slusarz notes “Jordan Thompson (defense) and Ethan Crick (goalie), both from Alberta are still with the team” adding that the Albertans “have remained key members of the team. Jordan has been the team president this season. Another addition has been Gabriel Giammarco who was born in Toronto.” Giammarco, the coach pointed out “has been one of the top scorers for the team this season.”
Looking back at the 2018-2019 Cal Ice Hockey season, coach Slusarz had this to say, “The team finished the season strongly and achieved a first place finish in the PAC-8 South Division. Wins over USC, UCLA, SJ State, Oregon, Stanford and SD State highlighted the season. The game with Stanford has been a crowd favorite for several years. This year was no exception, with a full house crowd at the Oakland Ice Center.”
Coach Slusarz was awarded Pac-8 Hockey Coach of the Year in the 2017-2018 season. Chris Linden will be taking over as coach next season. Coach Slusarz added, “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with the Cal Ice Hockey Team. I plan to stay connected to the Canadian Studies Program.”
Cal Rugby will soon kick off a two game series against the University of British Columbia. Cal plays UBC at home in Berkeley on February 23. Cal Rugby then travels to Canada to face off against UBC in Vancouver on March 3. For more info visit the Cal Rugby website.

Happy Boxing Day From Canadian Studies

From one of our fellow Canadian organizations in the Bay Area.


Happy Boxing Day from Canadian Studies
Greetings and happy Boxing Day from Berkeley! We are reaching out to let you know what we’ve been up to in 2018.
Canadian Studies was thrilled once again to support the work of our talented Hildebrand Fellows. They are Berkeley graduate students conducting research in Canada, or on Canadian topics. Three fellowship recipients presented this month: Kimberly Huynh (Civil/Environmental Engineering), Desiree Valadares (Architecture), and Alexandra Havrylyshyn (former Fellow, current Post-Doc at Berkeley Law). This year Canadian Studies also supported the work of Martha Herrara-Lasso Gonzáles (Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies), Erika Brown (School of Public Health), and Tyler Nodine (Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning).
In November, Michael Adams spoke in our luncheon Colloquium series on his new book “Could It Happen Here? Canada in the Age of Trump and Brexit.” During Cal Homecoming in mid-October, Thomas Garden Barnes Chair of Canadian Studies Irene Bloemraad spoke to a capacity crowd of 150 on “Why Canadians Love Immigration and Americans Aren’t so Sure.”
In October, Canadian Studies was also delighted to partner with the Digital Moose Lounge to present the 2nd Annual Canadian Family Thanksgiving at Alumni House. A sell-out crowd of over 100 Canadians and friends of Canada gathered to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving, network, and enjoy Canadian food and beverages.
A major highlight of the year was the visit of legendary Canadian author Margaret Atwood, to campus in August. Canadian Studies partnered with the College of Letters and Science to host a reception following Ms. Atwood’s talk, entitled “The Handmaid’s Tale Escapes From Its Book.” Several hundred students and members of the community enjoyed a witty talk by Ms. Atwood, and a festive reception in Lower Sproul Plaza afterward.
The 2018 Thomas Garden Barnes Lecture was delivered in April by Elizabeth May, MP, the leader of Canada’s Green Party. Ms. May discussed “Can Canada Claim Climate Leadership? Can the Paris Accord Succeed in Avoiding the Worst of the Climate Crisis?” The late Professor Thomas Barnes might not have agreed with all of Ms. May’s views, but he would have been delighted to have Canadian Studies in the thick of debate, whether scholarly or on key contemporary public policy issues.  This reflects Tom’s vision of Canadian Studies as a “big tent,” welcoming diverse viewpoints and disciplines.
Also to that end, Canadian Studies hosted a panel discussion on NAFTA in February. Academics and practitioners discussed “North American Futures: NAFTA in the Balance.” Canadian Consul General Rana Sarkar moderated with Dr. Christopher Sands (Canadian Studies, Johns Hopkins University), Maria Echaveste (UC Berkeley Earl Warren Institute on Law and Social Policy) and Jeremy Kinsman (former Canadian Ambassador). Some audience members said it was the most intellectually stimulating discussion they had heard at Berkeley.
Looking ahead, on January 29, the 2019 Thomas Garden Barnes Lecture will be delivered by Jean-Frédéric Morin, Fulbright Visiting Research Chair of Canadian Studies and Associate Professor at the Political Science Department of Laval University.
Finally, we want to take a moment to thank you for your ongoing support of Canadian Studies. Over 90% of our annual budget comes from the generosity of friends and donors like you, who care about making sure that the academic study of Canada remains a vibrant part of the intellectual life of the University. If your family is considering end-of-calendar-year gifts to causes you champion, we hope you will consider including Canadian Studies in your giving. UC Berkeley is a Revenue Canada Prescribed University and an Internal Revenue Service 501(c)(3) nonprofit, so contributions made to Canadian Studies may be tax-deductible on American and Canadian federal income taxes (consult your tax professional).

Since 1982, the Canadian Studies Program at the University of California, Berkeley, has served as an intellectual hub for thought on Canada and Canadian-American issues. We were honored to carry that legacy throughout 2018, and look forward to continuing that work in 2019. In the meantime, we wish you the happiest of holidays. Please know that we are grateful for your ongoing support of Canadian Studies at Berkeley. We couldn’t do it without you.

Next Colloquium Nov 13
Michael Adams, Environics
From award-winning author Michael Adams, Could It Happen Here? draws on groundbreaking new social research to show whether Canadian society is at risk of the populist forces afflicting other parts of the world.
Americans elected Donald Trump. Britons opted to leave the European Union. Far-right, populist politicians channeling anger at out-of-touch “elites” are gaining ground across Europe. In vote after shocking vote, citizens of Western democracies have pushed their anger to the top of their governments’ political agendas. The votes have varied in their particulars, but their unifying feature has been rejection of moderation, incrementalism, and the status quo.
Amid this roiling international scene, Canada appears placid, at least on the surface. As other societies retrench, the international media have taken notice of Canada’s welcome of Syrian refugees, its half-female federal cabinet, and its acceptance of climate science and mixed efforts to limit its emissions. After a year in power, the centrist federal government continues to enjoy majority approval, suggesting an electorate not as bitterly split as the ones to the south or in Europe.
As sceptics point out, however, Brexit and a Trump presidency were unthinkable until they happened. Could it be that Canada is not immune to the same forces of populism, social fracture, and backlash that have afflicted other parts of the world? Our largest and most cosmopolitan city elected Rob Ford. Conservative Party leadership hopeful Kellie Leitch proposes a Canadian values test for immigrants and has called the Trump victory “exciting.” Anti-tax demonstrators in Alberta chanted “lock her up” in reference to Premier Rachel Notley, an elected leader accused of no wrongdoing, only policy positions the protesters disliked.
Pollster and social values researcher Michael Adams takes Canadians into the examining room to see whether we are at risk of coming down with the malaise affecting other Western democracies. Drawing on major social values surveys of Canadians and Americans in 2016—as well as decades of tracking data in both countries—Adams examines our economy, institutions, and demographics to answer the question: could it happen here?

RACE AND THE APPARATUS OF DISPOSABILITY
Thursday, Nov 15, 2018 | 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Multicultural Community Center, MLK Student Union Building, UC Berkeley
Location is ADA accessible
Sherene H. Razack, Distinguished Professor and the Penny Kanner Endowed Chair in Gender Studies, UCLA
Disposability, a condition written on the body, is a racial project. Populations that stand in the way of the progress of capital accumulation, are targeted for disposability, and relegated to the realm of “sub-humanity.” Processes of disposability enable white Europeanness to prevail. In this paper, I pursue what race has to do with disposability through an examination of the death in custody of a Roma refugee. I show that states have to arrange for the reduction of bodies to human waste and individuals who are a part of the medical and apparatus of disposability (prison guards, medical doctors, psychologists, coroners, lawyers, judges, legislators, and scholars), perform their part in disposability through a professionally and institutionally sustained belief in the lesser value of racialized populations. We can trace the racial along several routes: who is produced as disposable, the infrastructure of disposability, and notably the medical and legal apparatus required to transform the destruction of bodies into authorized killing. In this presentation, I spend most of my time tracing the destruction of the body of a Roma refugee who died in a detention center. I end with comments about the connections that can be drawn between the processes of disposability for refugees, African Americans, Canadians, and Indigenous peoples who die at the hands of the police. These connections reveal disposability to be a racial and global process orchestrated by states and sustained by professionals (medical, legal, police).
Sherene H. Razack is Distinguished Professor and the Penny Kanner Endowed Chair in Gender Studies, UCLA. Her books include: Dying from Improvement: Inquests and Inquiries into Indigenous Deaths in Custody (2015); At the Limits of Justice: Women of Colour On Terror (2014, ed. with Suvendrini Perera); States of Race (2011, co-editor with Malinda Smith and Sunera Thobani); Casting Out: Race and the Eviction of Muslims From Western Law and Politics (2008); Dark Threats and White Knights: The Somalia Affair, Peacekeeping and the New Imperialism (2004); Looking White People in the Eye (1998).
