Last night I was at the Université de Montréal for the opening of the second exhibit of the Graphic History Collective’s Remember/Resist/Redraw project.
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.
I spoke with University Affairs about the 60 million+ pages of documents in the Canadiana collection now available online in open access.
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.
The 1977 murder of shoeshine boy Emanuel Jaques continues to draw attention forty years later. I discussed the event and its impact on the city with the Globe & Mail.
On June 22, I’m taking part in a roundtable discussion of the summer of 1977 in Toronto, and the impact a tragic murder had on politics, policing, and the future of downtown.
Rapport, the blog of the Ontario History and Social Science Teachers Association, interviewed me about my work with ActiveHistory.ca.
On February 23, 2017 I’ll be speaking at McGill University about my research on Yonge Street and the politics of downtown development in Toronto.
CBC News kindly gave me ten seconds of fame today, with an interview on the use of heritage planning to slow redevelopment in downtown Toronto.
My Spacing article on the Yonge Street mall is out!
Seven years in, it’s time to take stock of the Active History project. That’s the spirit behind the New Directions in Active History Conference, taking place next week (October 2-4) in London, ON.
This year, I was pleased to be asked to lead a Heritage Toronto walking tour of downtown, entitled “Creating Toronto: The Story of the City in Seven Stops”.
