Arts Speaker Series - “Highway Heritage Revisited: Retelling BC’s Public Histories”

Online
Microsoft Teams

Description:

Maddie Knickerbocker, Dept. of History, and KPU Students, History 4490

This talk focuses on revisiting the public history of British Columbia from decolonial, inclusive approaches, to share unknown stories about the province’s past. In the context of this current social moment, as British Columbians seek to grapple with our colonial history, there is a widespread desire for this kind of intentional reassessment of conventional narratives of the past. Moreover, this collaborative talk will feature student speakers sharing their own research results –little known stories about BC’s past –in ways that make sense to our student body and to non-specialist audiences.

All presentations will take place from 1-2 PM via Microsoft Teams. Please email artsevents@kpu.ca to RSVP to the virtual event. A Microsoft Teams link to the event will be sent to registrants two days prior to the event date.
