Abstract

This article analyzes the nationalism that the Parti acadien (PA) espoused between 1977 and 1982. The article explores the PA’s reading of Acadian history, the ease with which the party was able to maintain tangible links to earlier forms of Acadian nationalism, and the PA’s lack of integration of anglophones into the national community. The article suggests that the PA’s inability to integrate nonfrancophones contributed to its ultimate disappearance as well as to the death of the particular strand of Acadian nationalism that it represented.
