Description

Victoria in the Steps of the Transformers: Indigenous and Settler Spaces

Dr. John Lutz

Victoria is a storied place with many layers. For example, few are aware that Xehals, the great transformers of the Coast Salish world stopped here as they “made the world right” -- creating parts of Victoria’s landscape still visible today. In this talk Uvic historian John Lutz takes us on a tour of some the places where Indigenous and colonial transformers did their work and explores some of the legacies. Victoria will never look the same to you.

UVic Café Historique 2018-19 Season

The Traveller's Guide to History: Stand Where They Stood

The 2018-19 season of Café Historique continues to explore history through the lens of travel, 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! In 2017-18, we were transported to six great cities - Berlin, Venice, Montreal, Mexico City, London, and Washington D.C. This year, join UVic History professors as they invite you to journey back with them and "stand where they stood", reliving critical events and developments in history and reflecting on what evidence remains on the ground to be seen by the modern traveller.

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!
