The History of Immigration to North America

This Friday there are two public events at Glendon College in Toronto that explore the history of immigration to North America. They are part of the Borderlands Workshop, organized by a group of scholars that includes my York History colleague Ben Bryce. Since the workshop brings together scholars of immigration history from across Canada and the United States, these events are sure to provide lively discussion of a very relevant topic.
