Dr. Kevin O’Sullivan will be a visiting scholar at Carleton University from July 8 to August 4, to research Canadian archives. Kevin is the architect of the rich http://nonstatehumanitarianism.com/ , a founding member of ‘Transnational Ireland’ International Research Network and the author of many studies of Irish humanitarianism. He is researching countries of the Commonwealth.
The workshop will take place in the History Lounge (Paterson Hall 433 – see Map of Carleton’s Campus)
We will start at 8:30 in the morning and finish at supper time. There will be three distinct themes (research, future collaborations with archives and NGOS and teaching), in addition to a presentation by Kevin on his work and the state of affairs amongst his colleagues. The following day, Dr. O”Sullivan will have individual appointments of an hour each with the graduate students participants who wish to meet with him.
This will be an occasion to exchange concerns, findings, information about archives and documents, practices and projects, collaborations with communities.
Carleton doctoral candidate and our research assistant Will Tait, and I will coordinate the day. There will be food for all participants. We do not have too much money, but do tell me if you would need assistance for your travel and accommodation. We can also direct you to some hotels and Bed and breakfasts or residence rooms.
Kevin would like to visit the various NGO archives available in Ottawa, and also to work on materials relating to CIDA-NGO relations in the National Archives. This will also be an occasion to assist him.
