I’m pleased to share the calendar for the winter 2021 Jeudis d’histoire, a conference series organized annually by the Montreal History Group.
Over the last year, I’ve worked with Adèle Clapperton-Richard, Catherine Larochelle, and Julia Smith to put together a French-language exhibit of the Remember Resist Redraw project.
This year I’ve been part of a team of Montreal-based historians organizing the Écrire l’histoire des savoirs urbains/Histories of urban knowledge conference.
This winter, students in my class on the North American city created a group blog on Montreal’s vanished urban landscapes.
This fall, students in my class on the history of immigration created a collaborative map of Montréal’s migration history.
