The Quebec Toponymy Commission has responded to a petition started by Rachel Zellars, PhD candidate in our Department of Integrated Studies in Education (DISE), that asked the province to rename 11 locations because they contain the "N-word".

Initial reports indicate that the provincial commission has agreed to "de-officialize" the 11 names and have released a statement promising to consult the community during the renaming process.

2013 Cundill Lecture, From 2012 Cundill Prize Winner Stephen R. Platt

"Imperial Eclipse: The Long Road to the First Anglo-Chinese War"

The Opium War, or First Anglo-Chinese War, of 1839-1842 has long served historians as the chosen starting point for China’s modern history, the launching point of its “century of humiliation” from which successive governments have promised redemption. But such treatment sets the war in stone, as if  China’s military weakness and Britain’s predatory aggression in Canton were eternal and unchanging facts.
