Jerry Bannister Tonight

If you're around Peterborough, please do join us tonight for Trent University's 2012 W L Morton Lecture to be given this year by Jerry Bannister.

The title of the talk is 'The Tourist Gaze Reconsidered: Heritage, Politics, and Memory in Atlantic Canada.'

In my mind, Jerry Bannister is one of the reasons why early modern 'Canadian' history is where the good stuff is happening right now. Perhaps I'm just an envious 20th century historian, but I can't help but notice that this is the field that is coming up with so many original ideas, and insights. When I find myself at the CHA, these are the panels I want to go to.

See all the details about the lecture here.
