Historian of the city, politics, and society
Since 2017 ActiveHistory.ca has been working with the Graphic History Collective to promote the project Remember / Resist / Redraw (RRR). RRR rethinks Canadian history by bringing artists and historians together to present moments of resistance and “reasoning otherwise” in the history of this territory and its societies. Over the last year, I’ve worked with Adèle Clapperton-Richard, Catherine Larochelle, and Julia Smith to put together a French-language exhibit of these gorgeous and insightful posters. We’re very pleased to announce the exhibit will be taking place October 23rd-November 1st at the CDEx Gallery at UQAM. All are welcome to see these works of radical art, and at our opening on October 23rd, as well as Julia Smith’s talk, the 30th. In parallel with the exhibit, HistoireEngagée.ca will be publishing the posters online, with new French translations of the accompanying texts.
