Hosted by the Balsillie School for International Affairs and Laurier’s International Migration Research Centre

This event features a keynote address by Dr. John Hagan, Professor of Sociology and Law at Northwestern University, Vietnam war resister, and renowned author of Northern Passage: American Vietnam War Resisters in Canada. Dr. Hagan will deliver a lecture titled “How American's Have Remembered to Forget: Canada, Collective Memory and America's Forever Wars.”

This will be followed by a screening of a documentary film-in-progress: “Canada as safe haven?” The film weaves together the histories of US war resisters from both the Vietnam and Iraq wars, detailing their cross-border journeys and experiences.

The screening will be followed by a live panel discussion with filmmaker Lisa Molomot, war resisters featured in the film, activists, and Dr. Hagan.The panel will be moderated by Prof. Alison Mountz.

If you are interested in a longer discussion, please join us in the same location the next morning, Saturday, May 5. Registration is free but required for both events. Click here to register for the Saturday workshop.
