International Conference on the Study of Canada

May 21-23, 2015
Peterborough, Ontario

As part of Trent’s commemoration of its 50th anniversary, this conference will explore the study of Canada and will celebrate the important legacy of our founding president. The conference will also aim to showcase the interdisciplinary study and academic strengths that have come to define Trent’s identity.

Trent University has been at the forefront of Canadian Studies since the university was founded. The founding President, Professor T.H.B. Symons was an inspiring visionary in this regard. He founded the Journal of Canadian Studies, which Trent continues to fund.
