Join us for stimulating evenings this spring term. Speakers at our series generally read a paper, followed by discussion. No advance reading required. Presenters range from senior scholars to graduate students, and topics from field surveys to works-in-progress on the history of the north-eastern quadrant of North America. We particularly welcome visitors to the Toronto area.
Our program runs from 7-9 p.m. We meet in Room 240, University College,
15 King's College Circle, The University of Toronto. This space is best
accessed from the doors at the northeast corner of the University
College Building, where University College abuts Hart House.
We hope that you are able to join us!
Co-Chairs: Professor Allan Greer, and Heidi Bohaker, Ph.D. Candidate
