Date: Wed, 11/22/2017 - 17:30 to 19:00 Location: Colgate Room, 3459 rue McTavish, Montreal, H3A 0C9

The statesmen who wrote the Constitutional Act of 1867 knew that they were making history. What did it mean to make history; what lessons did “History” hold for the discerning? The lecture will explore the relationship between Scottish-Enlightenment narratives of civilization, British constitutional history, English-French perplexities, and the peculiarly illiberal governance of Indigenous peoples in 1860s Canada.
