Event description

Description

Every once in a while, an important historical figure makes an appearance, makes a difference and then disappears. James Teit (1864-1922) spent four decades helping British Columbia’s Indigenous peoples challenge the settler-colonial assault on their lives and lands. Yet his story is little-known. Join Dr Wendy Wickwire for a long-overdue corrective aimed at according Teit the status he deserves: as one of the leading political anthropologists of the 20th century.



UVic Café Historique 2019-20 Season

Great Stories

The 2019-20 season of Café Historique continues to explore history through a new lens: the telling of great stories. Whether the biography of a famous individual, the recounting of a dramatic event or the discovery of a long-forgotten or undeservedly neglected tale, these stories will amaze, thrill and inspire you. This year, join UVic History professors as they invite you to relive stories of conspiracy in Stuart England, the adventures of an early Indigenous rights activist in British Columbia, and the misdeeds of Jack the Ripper in Victorian London, to name just a few.

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 the slightly earlier time this year of 6pm. Donations of $2 per person are gratefully accepted at the event - bring your toonie!
