    Waterloo Public Library - Main Branch

    35 Albert St., Waterloo, ON

    Seating is limited. Tickets are free.

    This lecture series includes the following talks:

    Vimy Ridge: The Battle and the Myth | Historian Dr. Mark Humphries will talk about what happened during the famous battle, how it fit into the larger picture of military operations in 1917, and why Canadians have come to see it as the beginning of our national identity.

    Why Vimy? And Why Now? | Historian Dr. Mary Chaktsiris will discuss why Canada's First World War memorial was built on Vimy Ridge and share some of the stories behind its development. She will also explore contemporary commemorations of the battle to uncover what they can tell us about the Canada of today.

    Remembering and Forgetting the Great War | Professor of English Carol Acton will discuss how the male body is at the centre of war commemoration yet excludes physical and psychological war injury. She will then compare representations of injury in women’s fiction and memoir against public images.

    Re-inscribing Vimy 
    Art historian Joan Coutu will explore memory and permanence by looking at how the Vimy memorial has faded and re-entered Canadian consciousness since World War II.
