Welcome to the Wilson Institute’s new blog

Au-delà des frontières: La nouvelle histoire du Canada/Beyond Borders: The New Canadian History is the name of the new Wilson Institute for Canadian History’s blog. It is a title that we believe best represents our mandate and our new director’s vision.

“Au-delà des frontières/Beyond Borders” reflects our commitment to transnational history; particularly, Canadian history beyond the Canadian border. Since the creation of the Wilson Institute in 2008, we have worked to understand Canada in a global perspective and how Canada has influenced – or been influenced by – transnational phenomena. Throughout the years, we have provided (and continue to provide) postdoctoral teaching and research fellowships to recent PhDs and hosted numerous workshops, conferences, and visiting speakers on a variety of transnational themes.
