Guelph Military Lecture Series - online

Military Lecture: Missing Memorials? How Canada has Commemorated the Second World War

The war memorials that dot communities across the country are the sites of the most important public ceremonies of the civic calendar. They hearken back to our history, they help us remember our war dead, and they help us envision the future. But they have histories of their own.

This talk by Thomas Littlewood presents new research which reconsiders our understandings of these memorials, when they were built, and what they mean.
