Time Travel to Brantford, 1900-1920: Telling Brantford’s Early Immigrant Stories by Christina Han
In this talk, Christina Han will present findings from her research “Comparative Spatial Histories of Brantford’s Early Immigrant Communities: A Deep Mapping and Digital Storytelling Project,” which investigates histories of Brantford’s Armenian, Italian, and Chinese communities from 1900-1920. She will also share how the project led to the creation of “Flashback Downtown Brantford,” a public history event created by her undergraduate students which included multiple exhibits as well as community engagement.
This hybrid event will take place on February 15th at 7pm ET. For in-person attendance, the event will take place at 232 King St N., Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. Doors will open at 6:30pm. For online attendance please register HERE.
