CANADIAN STUDIES 50TH ANNIVERSARY
FALL 2022 - SPRING 2023
Exploring Canada, from Sea to Sea to Sea - 50 years of Canadian Studies at Trent
In 1972 Trent established the first ever program in Canadian Studies. The study of Canada has been central to the university’s identity ever since.
For the 2022-2023 year we are celebrating 50 years of Canadian scholarship, and to mark the occasion Trent invites the entire community to a series of events that pay homage to our rich academic heritage in Canadian Studies and show that we remain at the forefront of Canadian scholarship.
A Year of Conversation & Celebration
Events are firming up, and we look forward to welcoming you in person and virtually to an exciting year of scholarship and celebration. More details and dates will be added to this page as they are confirmed, so check back regularly, or visit the Trent Events Calendar
