History of Carleton’s History Department

I am part of a team of colleagues who supervise the collection of documents and oral histories towards the making of histories of the department which will be posted online shortly.  So far we  have interviewed Naomi Griffiths, Peter King, John Taylor and David Farr.

From February 2014, honour student Devin Cross will be  preparing interviews with alumni and retired professors.

Do write a comment or email me if you have anything you would like to share.

Champlain on the Anishinabe: Colloquium

The Colloquium ” Champlain on the Anishinabe Aki: Histories and Memories of an Encounter” welcomed more than 250 people at Carleton on September 19 and 20 2013.  For the coming year, we will be working at furthering exchanges of public history, by enriching the digital repository, encouraging projects involving academia and the communities interested in the history of firstencounters.  The project benefits from a SSHRC “Connection” grant.
