Tourism in Canadian History: Alan Gordon, Susan Nance featured in Histoire sociale/Social History
This June, Alan Gordon and Susan Nance are featured in a special issue of Histoire sociale/Social History on tourism in Canada with articles on pioneer villages as living history museums, and on horses of the 1920s Calgary Stampede, respectively.
The special issue is the result of a Fall 2014 workshop on Canadian tourism history sponsored by Jack Little and Ben Bradley, held in Vancouver BC. Other departmental participants included our own Linda Mahood, who featured some of her forthcoming research on hitchhiking and youth cultures, and Kevin James, who delivered a keynote speech on the culture hotels and inns in 19th century Ireland.
