Objects of Affection: Producing and Consuming Toys and Childhood in Canada, 1840-1989

Hutchinson, Braden 16 September 2013 (has links)
This thesis examines the significance of toy production, distribution, marketing and consumption to Canadian understandings of childhood. Drawing on Patrick J. Ryan’s concept of the discursive landscape of modern childhood and Daniel Thomas Cook’s commercial persona of the child consumer, it explores the effect of toy controversies on a number of social, political and economic issues between the arrival of manufactured toys in Canada in the mid-nineteenth century and the rise of postindustrial capitalism. The toy industry, the social sciences, consumer activists and the Canadian state all played a pivotal role in raising the social significance attached to toy consumption. In the end, debates about toys highlighted popular manifestations of complex political and social issues by placing children and their material culture at the symbolic centre of “adult” conflicts. / Thesis (Ph.D, History) -- Queen's University, 2013-09-15 01:20:03.345

The Canadian News is Unimportant| The Anomaly of Canada in the British Empire, 1860-1867

Hewitt, Haley A. 11 April 2019 (has links)
<p>?The Canadian News is Unimportant? analyzes the anomaly of Canada in the British Empire in the nineteenth century by seeking to understand the role that Canada played in the production of empire abroad and understanding of empire in the metropole. The study is situated between the periods of the American Civil and the Canadian confederation movement and explores metropolitan newspapers and parliamentary debates to develop the themes of imagined identities, paternalistic language, and rhetoric of empire. Such explorations illustrate just how difficult it would become for the British metropole to reconcile their constructed image of a dependent and child-like colony with the reality of increasing Canadian autonomy. This study expands imperial historiography by showing just how important the Canadian news was in the constructions of the British empire in the nineteenth century.

The French, English and a Fish: How They Transformed the Island of Newfoundland, 1696-1713

January 2016 (has links)
abstract: Newfoundland is an island on the east coast of Canada that is mostly forgotten to the study of history. This paper looks in depth at the fighting between France and England between 1696 and 1713, which in Europe coincided with the Nine Years’ War and the War of the Spanish Succession. In 1696, fighting broke out on Newfoundland between England and France because of the Nine Years’ War. Pierre le Moyne d’Iberville, a French officer, commanded the attacks on over twenty English settlements. The attacks lasted less than a year. Attacks would happen again because of the War of the Spanish Succession. France and England would attack each other trying to gain control of the prized commodity of the island, the cod fish. This study looks at how French and English fighting on Newfoundland helped to change the landscape and shaped the way the history of the French and English on the island is portrayed today. Historians tend to look more at the modern history of the island such as: soldiers in World War I and World War II, when Newfoundland became a Canadian province, and the English history of the island. This study argues that, by studying French and English fighting on the island, we can better see the historical significance of Newfoundland. / Dissertation/Thesis / Masters Thesis History 2016

Evaluating the linkages between technological strategies and competitive strategies of business units in different technological environments: A U.S./Canada contrast

Dugal, Sanjiv S 01 January 1991 (has links)
The links between technological and competitive strategies of business units (BUs) trying to achieve a competitive edge in the market have recently drawn a considerable amount of attention. Current research recognizes the strategic nature of technology itself and suggests that business managers have to understand their technological environments before they can gain any substantial competitive advantage. This study provides a structural framework for empirical research into the relationship between a business unit's technological strategy and its competitive strategy, in the context of its technological environment. Using the Profit Impact of Market Strategy (PIMS) Data Base, a sample of 3,336 business units in the U.S. and Canada are cross-classified into stable, fertile and turbulent technological environments and by the three stages (growth, mature and decline) of their product life-cycle. Analysis of variance is applied to a set of variables in an exploratory attempt to determine response patterns of five Technological Strategy variables (dependent variables) in each of six Strategic Configurations (independent variables). The research attempts to examine the links that emerge between Technological Strategy and Competitive Strategy variables, in the context of BUs' technological environment and stage of product life-cycle. The sample is divided into U.S. and Canadian business units to explore any significant differences in competitive positioning between the two countries.
