Canada's Hidden Histories

Our country’s 150th anniversary has been a year of both celebration and debate about our collective and contested past. Four professors from Laurier and Waterloo will bring to light some of the hidden figures and narratives, including those of First Nations, gender struggles, and migration/refugee experiences.

Speakers

  • Carol Duncan, professor in Religion and Culture/Women and Gender Studies, Wilfrid Laurier University
  • Eleanor Ty, professor in English and Film Studies, Wilfrid Laurier University
  • Susan Roy, professor in History, University of Waterloo
