Online Workshop Online Workshop: “Canadian Coastal Histories” from 19-20 November

This two-day online workshop will discuss the changes coastal cultures, coastal places, and global oceanic connections will face in the time of the climate crisis. Growing international interest in coasts from a range of disciplines suggests a productive framework for rethinking histories from the land and tidewaters currently known as Canada, the country with the world’s longest coastline.
