Description

UVic Café Historique 2017-18 Season

The Traveller's Guide to History: Great Cities

Our 2017-18 season is based on a popular UVic course called The Backpacker’s Guide to European History. Of course, you don’t need to strap a backpack on to enjoy travel – but it helps to know a little bit about the history of the places you’re going! Our third fall talk will bring us back closer to home - the exciting, cosmopolitan city of Montreal.

Montreal: The Bloody Origins of Canada’s First Metropolis

Dr. Peter Cook

Much of Montreal’s appeal today is due to its reputation as a cosmopolitan city with world-class institutions. But for two centuries before its industrial transformation into a metropolis ruled by a gilded elite, Montreal was a vulnerable frontier outpost and its population—Indigenous, European, and African—swept up in the maelstrom of colonialism. Join Dr Peter Cook for a guided tour through the landscapes of preindustrial Montreal and a reflection on the significance of its colonial past.

We're thrilled that Hermann's is alive and well and welcoming us back for another season. As in previous years, doors open at 5pm and talks begin at 6:30. Donations of $2 per person are gratefully accepted at the event - bring your toonie!
