Growing Up Canadian



Growing Up Canadian: Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists
Edited by Peter Beyer and Rubina Ramji
McGill-Queen's University Press, 2013

 
A significant number of Canadian-raised children from post-1970s immigrant families have reached adulthood over the past decade. As a result, the demographics of religious affiliation are changing across Canada. Growing Up Canadian is the first comparative study of religion among young adults of Muslim, Hindu, and Buddhist immigrant families.

Contributors consider how relating to religion varies significantly depending on which faith is in question, how men and women have different views on the role of religion in their lives, and how the possibilities of being religiously different are greater in larger urban centres than in surrounding rural communities. Interviews with over two hundred individuals, aged 18 to 26, reveal that few are drawn to militant, politicized religious extremes, how almost all second generation young adults take personal responsibility for their religion, and want to understand the reasons for their beliefs and practices.

The first major study of religion among this generation in Canada, Growing Up Canadian is an important contribution to understanding religious diversity and multiculturalism in the twenty-first century.

Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs

Le Berkley Center at Georgetown University a été créé au sein du bureau de John J. DeGioia, Président de Georgetown, en mars 2006. Le centre a été conçu afin de miser sur les forces de Georgetown: l'excellence académique; son emplacement à Washington, DC; sa portée internationale et sa tradition catholique et jésuite d'ouverture aux autres religions et au vaste monde séculier. Le généreux soutien de William R. Berkley, un membre du conseil d'administration de l'université, a permis la croissance rapide du centre.
