History: Tri-University History Conference, Oct. 16

Posted on Thursday, October 7th, 2010

This year's Tri-U History Conference takes place in the Arts Lecture Building at the University of Waterloo. Our focus this year, "Cold War Encounters," coincides with the recent creation of the Cold War History Field at the Ph.D. level and spotlights an exciting diversity of a global scholarship.

This year's keynote speaker: Dr. Fredrik Logevall, John S. Knight, Professor of International Studies at Cornell University and author of several books, including the highly acclaimed Choosing War: The Lost Chance for Peace and the Escalation of War in Vietnam. Currently Dr. Logevall is researching a biography of former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
