Benjamin Hoy is an Associate Professor of History and the Director of the HGIS Lab at the University of Saskatchewan. Hoy’s first book, A Line of Blood and Dirt: Creating the Canada-United States Border across Indigenous Lands (Oxford University Press, 2021) examines the creation of the Canada-US border and its uneven effects on the communities who lived in its shadow from 1775 to 1930. Hoy’s broader research focuses on digital mapping (HGIS), game-based learning, and the history of everyday power along border regions.
