Environmental History Week at York University (Part 2)


If you missed last week’s fantastic environmental history public lectures by Tina Loo and James McCann at York University, you have a second chance to take part in the splendor of public environmental history lectures on our Keele campus.

This coming week, York will be hosting two more events featuring distinguished scholars in the field of environmental history. First, on Monday, March 12 Professor Julie Cruikshank, author of Do Glaciers Listen? Local Knowledge, Colonial Encounters and Social Imagination, will be the final speaker in the Transforming Canada: Histories of Environmental Change series at the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies. Dr. Cruikshank will be giving a paper titled, “Indigenous Knowledge and its Transformations: An Environmental Narrative.”
