There are in Canada, as in other countries, many stories about refuge. Some of this history has been used to create powerful nation-building myths, which in turn have facilitated the inclusion of some and the exclusion of others. This edition of the Shannon Lecture Series, “Rewriting Refuge” seeks to explore the history of sanctuary and protection from new or neglected directions.

The series will launch on 16 October 2023 with an afternoon virtual panel, 1300-1430 EST. Join a conversation that includes Kate Reed, Marcia Schenck and Gerawok Teferra, whose work in The Right to Research brings refugee and host-community historians to the fore; and Dr. Christina Clark-Kazak, author of Research Across Borders on cross-border and cross-cultural methods.
