We are happy to announce our 2019 Corsini Fellows in Canadian History: Julia Pyryeskinaand Matthieu Caron!
On 4-5-6 July 2019, the Wilson Institute is hosting a Retreat for High School Teachers, held in collaboration with the Ontario High School and Social Science Teachers’ Association (OHASSTA). The main idea behind this retreat is to explore critical, thought-provoking, and contemporary approaches to the teaching of history in the twenty-first century.
