The Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Studies (LCMSDS), which has become one of Canada’s largest military history research centres since its founding in the early 1990s by Terry Copp and Marc Kilgour, is now expanding to become the Laurier Centre for the Study of Canada (LCSC). The reimagined research centre will facilitate and support original research on the expansive, evolving, and contested interpretations of Canada. 

LCSC consists of three new research collectives which will examine the themes of Policy Connections for Canada, Communities, and Publics and Social Justice, while legacy LCMSDS programming will continue under the War and Society collective. Each collective is made up of Laurier faculty and graduate students from more than a dozen departments in the Faculty of Arts and Faculty of Liberal Arts, as well as external research fellows from academic and community partners.
