Tri-University History Conference 2013 Poster

The Tri-University Conference is a wonderful opportunity for students and faculty to get to know each other, to share ideas, and debate the latest developments in our field. This year, the Tri-University conference will take place at the Best Western Hotel in Guelph.

The theme is “New Approaches to History” and to this end, we are featuring a keynote panel with three fantastic historians from the Tri-University.

Ian Milligan, a recent hire at the University of Waterloo, who writes on youth and labour in the 1960s, and new digital technologies, will give a paper on “Preparing for the Infinite Archive: Social Historians and the Looming Digital Deluge.”

Amy Milne-Smith, the author of London Clubland: A Cultural History of Gender and Class in late-Victoria Britain (2011) will be speak on “Queensberry’s Misrule: Exploring honour, duty, and the gentleman in late-Victorian Britain.”

Norman Smith, the author of Resisting Manchukuo: Chinese Women Writers and the Japanese Occupation (2007) will speak on “Sources, Souses and the Writing of Manchurian History.”
