Description

Washington, D.C.: Race and Space in the American Capital

Dr. Jason Colby

Today, Washington, DC, is the government seat of the world’s greatest power, known for political intrigue, stark-white monuments, and a thriving cultural scene. Yet it began as a little swamp town built with slave labour, and its passage into a modern city has traced the painful story of race in America. Join Dr. Jason Colby for a journey through the history of the US capital.

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!

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!
