Kouchibouguac: Removal, Resistance and Remembrance at a Canadian National Park

 

Ronald Rudin, Co-Director of COHDS and professor in Concordia’s Department of History, has recently published his seventh book, Kouchibouguac: Removal, Resistance and Remembrance at a Canadian National Park (University of Toronto Press, 2016).

The work explores both the history and memory of the establishment of the park, located on New Brunswick’s eastern shore. Its creation in 1969 led to the expropriation of over 200 (mostly Acadian) families. In Kouchibouguac, Ronald Rudin draws on extensive archival research, interviews with more than thirty of the displaced families, and a wide range of Acadian cultural creations to tell the story of the park’s establishment, the resistance of its residents, and the memory of that experience. You can read an excerpt from the book here.
