Domestication of Human Trafficking in Canada

27 October @ 7:00 pm ET
Human trafficking is an issue that has garnered significant attention in Canada and globally, following the enactment of the United Nations’ Trafficking Protocol in 2002. Expansive laws, policies and mandates against trafficking were put into place following Canada’s ratification of the Protocol. This talk will examine some of the impacts of these efforts over the past twenty years, including how trafficking has come to be defined, and its impacts on sex working, migrant and racialized communities.
ATTENDANCE INFORMATION
This hybrid event will be hosted in-person and broadcasted live via Zoom.

If you would like to attend in-person, the event will take place at 232 King St N. Doors open at 6:30pm.

THE IRISH CANADIAN RANGERS IN CANADA AND IRELAND, 1914–17

29 September @ 7:00 pm ET
The Irish Canadian Rangers began as a Militia Regiment in 1915 after Catholic and Protestant Irish agreed to cooperate. After the battle of Second Ypres, the regiment contributed a full company to the 60th Battalion and began a campaign to persuade Sam Hughes to promise that an Irish Canadian Rangers battalion would go overseas as the 199th under its own officers. Recruiting began in 1916 and continued despite the Easter Rebellion in Dublin and the growing turmoil in Ireland. The 199th struggled to reach full strength but responded favorably to a British request to tour Ireland before joining the 5th Canadian Division.

Drawing upon research for his recent book, Montreal At War, 1914–1918, Terry Copp examines both Irish and Canadian history in this dramatic, formative period.

“A Very Fine Plan in the Memory of Our Boys”


DAVID ROSS ALEXANDER
Abstract: The memorial plaques dedicated to the First and Second World War dead of many of Canada’s secondary schools including the Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute may have borne close resemblance but the experience of those whose names appeared on the walls was very different. The adolescent experience of students who attended these schools during the interwar years contrasted with that of their mothers and fathers. They enlisted, fought and died in a much more technologically advanced and globalised war than the previous generation. They were shaping their own distinct identity in youth and war and how would the collective memory of them reflect these realities? Although many of the same ceremonial rituals and ways were adopted once again, there were new emerging forms to commemorate Canada’s Second World War dead.

The Lives and Afterlives of Material Culture / Les mille et une vies de la culture matérielle


LAURA BROWN & TIM COOK | Canadian War Museum – Musée canadien de la guerre
Abstract: This article presents a selection of First World War artifacts that have been acquired by the Canadian War Museum since its opening in 2005. Each object is infused with multiple stories. Some were treasured mementos handed down through families, while others were nearly forgotten over time. Once at the museum, they acquired new narratives as these objects, artifacts and material culture are integrated into exhibitions, educational and digital products or accessed by researchers. The artifacts tell stories, contribute to our understanding of the diversity of Canadian experiences during the war and demonstrate the central role of the artifact in the museum.

Cet article présente une sélection d’artefacts de la Première Guerre mondiale qui ont été acquis par le Musée canadien de la guerre depuis son ouverture en 2005. Ces objets évoquent des histoires diverses, les uns, souvenirs précieux transmis par les familles, les autres, presque oubliés au fil du temps. Une fois acquis par le musée, les objets, les artefacts et la culture matérielle entament une nouvelle vie en s’insérant dans les expositions, en servant de matériel éducatif et numérique ou en étant mis à la disposition des chercheurs. Les artefacts racontent des histoires, contribuent à notre compréhension de la diversité des expériences canadiennes pendant la guerre et démontrent le rôle central de l’artefact dans le musée.

Hidden in Plain Sight


PAUL MARSDEN & GLENN WRIGHT | Feature
Abstract: In the late 1940s, the Department of National Defence enthusiastically embraced microfilming technology, undertaking a massive project to microfilm several million files covering the period 1885 to 1948. This article describes the authors’ research to trace one particular microfilm job covering Military Personnel Files managed by the Department of Militia and Defence. The authors have unearthed a large cache of unexplored records, comprising tens of thousands of military personnel files, the majority of which deal with military service during the Great War.
