Recap: Winter 2019 ‘Migration and Movement’ Workshops

This semester’s workshop series saw speakers from all over the world: Kieran Taylor from our very own Scotland, Ashley Foster from the United States, Dr. Hide Hirota from Japan, and Jennifer McCoy from Australia.

The ‘Migration and Movement’ theme continued to highlight the wide selection of important and promising research currently being undertaken. Thank you to all of our speakers, and to everyone who attended. Here’s a roundup of the semester in pictures:

Ashley Foster (University of Notre Dame) shared her research on Scottish interactions with 18th-century Transatlantic Revivalism
Hidetaka Hirota (Waseda University) discussed the research behind his new book, Expelling the Poor: Atlantic Seaboard States and the 19th Century Origins of American Immigration Policy.
Jennifer McCoy (Federation University) explored the exciting possibilities of her PhD research which looks at the indigenous history of the Victorian Land Act territories.
