‘Past Relations, Historical Meetings’

The 2003 Tri-University History Conference was held at Paul Martin Centre and the new Arts C-wing at Wilfrid Laurier University. The three morning sessions focused on the topics “Nazi Perpertrators in WWII,” “Reassessing Gendered Historiography,” and “Contesting the Frontier”, while the three afternoon sessions looked at “Self and Soul in Europe,” “Dilemmas and Contradictions in the Mid- 20th Century,” and “Race and Resistance.”

The keynote speech was from Dr. Margaret Macmillan (Professor of History at the University of Toronto and Provost of the University of Trinity College), with the topic “Making Peace is Harder than Waging War: the Paris Peace Conference of 1919.”
