As intellectual engines of the university, professors hold considerable authority and play an important role in society. By nature of their occupation, they are agents of intellectual culture in Canada. Historical Identities is a new collection of essays examining the history of the professoriate in Canada. Framing the volume with the question, 'What was it like to be a professor?' editors Paul Stortz and E. Lisa Panayotidis, along with an esteemed group of Canadian historians, strive to uncover and analyze variables and contexts - such as background, education, economics, politics, gender, and ethnicity - in the lives of academics throughout Canada's history. The contributors take an in-depth approach to topics such as academic freedom, professors and the state, faculty development, discipline construction and academic cultures, religion, biography, gender and faculty wives, images of professors, and background and childhood experiences. Including the best and most recent critical research in the field of the social history of higher education and professors, Historical Identities examines fundamental and challenging topics, issues, and arguments on the role and nature of intellectualism in Canada.

This edited collection illustrates the way in which women’s experiences of academe could be both contextually diverse but historically and culturally similar. It looks at both the micro (individual women and universities) and macro-level (comparative analyses among regions and countries) within regional, national, trans-national, and international contexts. The contributors integrally advance knowledge about the university in history by exploring the intersections of the lived experiences of women students and professors, practices of co-education, and intellectual and academic cultures. They also raise important questions about the complementary and multidirectional flow and exchange of academic knowledge and information among gender groups across programmes, disciplines, and universities. Historical inquiry and interpretation serve as efficacious ways with which to understand contemporary events and discourses in higher education, and more broadly in community and society. This book will provide important historical contexts for current debates about the numerical dominance and significance of women in higher education, and the tensions embedded in the gendering of specific academic programs and disciplines, and university policies, missions, and mandates.

The University of Toronto’s Faculty of Arts and Science is older than the university itself. Chartered in 1827 as King’s College, it officially opened in 1843 with four professors and twenty-seven students. In this lively and engaging book, Robert Craig Brown vividly recounts the 150-year history of the faculty’s staff, students, and achievements. Brown takes readers on a sweeping journey though the development and growth of the faculty through wartime and peace, depression and prosperity. He covers teaching and research in the vast array of subjects offered, administrative and financial concerns, and the Faculty’s significant contributions to higher education in Canada. Throughout, Brown traces how the faculty evolved past its early defining traits of elitism and exclusivity to its current form – a remarkably diverse body with students of all ages, backgrounds, and academic interests.

In The Canadianization Movement, Jeffrey Cormier examines the 'Canadianization' of the Canadian intellectual and cultural communities from the 1960s to the 1980s. The author documents the efforts of cultural nationalists as they struggled to build a strong, vibrant Canadian cultural community. Cormier asks four questions to guide his analysis. First, why did the Canadianization movement emerge when it did? Second, how did the movement transform itself for long-term survival? Third, what kinds of mobilizing structures did the movement make use of, and what influence did these structures have on the movement's activities? And finally, how did the movement maintain itself in times when the political and media climate was unsupportive? Using data collected from archival sources as well as twenty-two in-depth interviews with participants, Cormier documents the actions that organizational intellectuals took in pushing for social and cultural change, an aspect of social movements literature that, until now, has largely been only theorized about.

Snitch! is a thorough and vivid study of intelligence informers-people who secretly supply information to a domestic state security agency. Going back through history, from the rise of the modern security state to today's ongoing war on terror, Snitch! addresses the reasons people, such as Ronald Reagan or Walt Disney, choose to inform, why the state needs informers, and how information is both gathered and transmitted.

University histories have covered many aspects of social and institutional development, but they have rarely focussed on the professoriate. As intellectual engines of the university, professors held considerable authority in the creation, handling, and dissemination of knowledge--an extraordinarily important and powerful commodity in society. The professoriate is a unique group of people, often referred to as a community--but very hard to define individually and collectively--that carry with it ascribed characteristics, self- and imposed identities, particular social and intellectual cultures and understandings, and even stereotypes and mythologies. As historical agents, the professors shaped intellectualism on university campuses, and in local communities and provincial and national jurisdictions and institutions.Using socio-historical analysis and argument, this thesis focuses on a selected sample of the Faculty of Arts professoriate at the University of Toronto 1935-1945. This group of professors constructed its cultures and identities in various, historically-contextual ways, negotiating the academic and intellectual surroundings that they themselves created. Within a complex social environment of multiple academic methodologies, democratic and undemocratic bureaucratic cultures, formal and informal interrelations, and the relationship of large intellectual cloisters on campus with surrounding communities and the state, the Faculty of Arts offers a rich historical laboratory for study into a collective of advanced teachers and researchers. The time frame adds nuance to the study, as the university was undergoing a fundamental change from what many contemporary agents thought to be collegial and paternal to the more formal, bureaucratic multi-university of today. Driving this was the growing belief in the efficacy of research over teaching as the sine qua non of the experience of a professor. This thesis invites debate on the contested roles and nature of the professoriate, and based on subjective narratives, interpretations, and perspectives, a single, overriding definition of the professoriate in this space and time in Canadian history remained largely non-consentient and elusive.
