A new name, bigger mandate, and more possibilities

An item from the Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Studies that may be of interest to our membership.


Welcome to the New Laurier Centre for the Study of Canada!
The Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Studies (LCMSDS), which has become one of Canada’s largest military history research centres since its founding by Terry Copp and Marc Kilgour, is expanding to become the Laurier Centre for the Study of Canada (LCSC).

The reimagined research centre will facilitate and support original research on the expansive, evolving and contested interpretations of Canada.

War and Society Research to Continue

LCMSDS programming will continue under the banner of the new War and Society collective, including:

  • the annual Canadian Military History Colloquium
  • virtual and in-person public lectures
  • our journal Canadian Military History, published in partnership with the Canadian War Museum
  • the On War & Society podcast
  • battlefield study tours
  • Laurier Military History Archive

Legacy LCMSDS content from canadianmilitaryhistory.ca is still available in the War and Society section of studyofcanada.ca.

Additional Research Subjects and Partners

In addition the legacy programming, LCSC welcomes three new research collectives, which will examine the themes of Policy Connections for CanadaCommunities, and Publics and Social Justice.

Each collective is made up of Laurier faculty and graduate students from more than a dozen departments in the Faculty of Arts and Faculty of Liberal Arts, as well as external research fellows from academic and community partners.

Work in these collectives is already well underway, providing high-quality experiential learning and training opportunities for Laurier undergraduate and graduate students. Research in all four collectives is supported through the new Copp Scholars program that has already funded more than 2,500 hours of research assistance from a team of 17 senior undergraduate students.
