Please join us for the 2017 annual Tri-University History Conference to be held on 11 March 2017 at the Balsillie School of International Affairs in Waterloo, Ontario. This year’s theme is “Communities: Recognition and Remembrance,” highlighting debates around the various local, national, and international anniversaries in 2017 – such as 150 years since Canadian Confederation, 100 years since the Russian Revolution, or 40 years since the last reported case of smallpox – and examining the politics and performance of commemoration and public memory.

The Tri-University Graduate Program in History has one of the largest concentrations of graduate faculty in Indigenous history in the country, offering expertise on gender, environmental history, health and wellness, cultural performance, public history, Indigenous-settler relations, resource and urban development disputes, Indigenizing/Indigenized identities and activism, histories of settler colonialism, Anishinaabe feminism, and Indigenous research methodologies, pedagogies, and decolonizing practices.
Indigenous Histories of Turtle Island covers the history of Indigenous peoples in what is now Canada and the United States. The term Turtle Island signals an Indigenous label for this geographical place. It also highlights Indigenous historical understandings and is culturally relevant to the Indigenous peoples—Neutral, Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee—on whose traditional territories all three universities involved in the Tri-University Graduate Program in History are situated.
This space will regularly feature the experiences, achievements, and perspectives of the graduate students and faculty of the Tri-University Graduate Program in History. The blog will also be a great source of information for upcoming events and conferences. Stay tuned!
