Thinking about moments that matter

Over the course of the Winter 2018 semester, students in HIST 203 (Canadian History Since 1867) have critically engaged with how we think about significance and history in the context of national narratives dominated by notions of progress and improvement. The results are below. Each of these “Moments that Matter” has been selected and curated based on criteria developed by the students themselves. The context and significance of each moment is elaborated in the descriptions provided in individual blog posts. The result is a complex and multi-layered assessment of history in Canada that challenges how we think of “significance” as historians and as citizens of the world.
