Abstract: 

In this presentation given at SFU on September 24, 2018, adjunct professor Ken Cameron introduces his new book, Showing the Way: Peter Oberlander and the Imperative of Global Citizenship. Through the previously unpublished story of Oberlander's progression from persecution and internment to becoming a pioneer in Canadian urbanism, Cameron's book elucidates the remarkable evolution of the concept of citizenship over the past 100 years. Cameron's lecture focuses on the meaning of citizenship today as a set of rights and responsibilities we must exercise at the local, national and international levels if humanity is to survive the forces of nativism, intolerance and protectionism now sweeping our world.
