2018-19 classes have taken Huron History students on the road for funded community-based archival research. In HIST 3201E First Peoples and Colonialism in Canada, work continues on Dr. Peace’s SSHRC Partnership Engage Grant titled “Documenting Early Residential Schools”–read more about this innovative project here!
Historian’s Craft students joined Dr. Bell in Chatham at the Chatham Kent Black Historical Society for work on HIST 3801E’s “Antislavery in Small Things” project, and Dr. Bell and Dr. Reid-Maroney’s SSHRC project, Finding Christ Church: Social Justice in History, Memory, and Contemporary Practice.
And in October, History students participated in the two-day Lake Erie Borderlands Field School, stopping in Gibraltar, Michigan, en route to Oberlin, Ohio. Read about class research documenting antislavery links between 19th-century Oberlin and Canada West here.
