Event Details

The conference begins at 5.30pm on Friday 28 March with a plenary session and a reception until 8.00pm. It resumes at 9.30am on Saturday 29 March with a full day of presentations until 5.30pm. You are welcome to attend for some or all of the conference. Speakers include Michèle Dagenais (Université de Montréal), Damaris Rose (INRS, Montreal), Phillip Mackintosh (Brock University), Nicolas Kenny (Simon Fraser University) and Richard Anderson (York University).

The aims of the conference are to explore (1) how study of the history and historical geography of Canadian cities informs our understanding of present-day cities; (2) how the past is still present - as palimpsest, heritage or memory - in today's Canadian cities; (3) how knowledge and experience of today's cities informs and reshapes the questions we ask about Canadian cities in the past.

The conference also marks 40 years at UCL on the part of the urban historical geographer, Richard Dennis, and the presentations will reflect some of his interests in modernity, the social geography of late 19th and 20th-century cities, and the intersection of literary, visual and more broadly 'cultural' approaches to the study of cities with more social-science methods of study.

The full program will be available here shortly. Attendance is free but registration is required.
