Epochs of Time-Configuration: A glimpse at the work of Gerald Friesen
This paper examines two of the four epochs of time-space configuration discussed by Gerald Friesen in his work, “Citizens and nation: An essay on history, communications, and Canada.” The two epochs of time-space dimensions which shall be explored are the oral-traditional and the textual settler. The paper will discuss how there is a powerful continuity between the oral-traditional epoch of the aboriginals and the textual-settler epoch that defines the arrival of the Europeans and the beginning of what can be described...
The end:
.....e land around us.  
To end, this paper has looked at two important epochs discussed by Friesen and how time and space were perceived by the peoples of those epochs – and how time and space continue to shape the Canadian sensibility even today. If nothing else, there is a continuity between the epochs that is as strong and real as the Canadian shield.
