2021 History Symposium

Since 1990, a small group of dedicated historians have annually held a History Symposium in South-Western Ontario.  This year the event was due to return to its roots in London, Ontario, but COVID had other plans.  In continuing with our tradition, though, we held our 2021 History Symopsium entirely online.  It took place on Saturday, February 27th, from 8:00 to 4:00 (EST). 


We were thrilled to be able to host an exciting line-up of speakers from across Canada and around the globe.  Beneath each speaker's title is a link to their presentation on YouTube.


8:00 a.m. (EST) Eamonn O'Keeffe - Siblings or Subordinates? Brotherhood, Hierarchy, and Discipline among Napoleonic-era British Army Officers


10:00 a.m. (EST) Zack MacLeod Pinsent - Dressing the Dandy: The Wardrobe of a Regency Gentleman


1:00 p.m. (EST) Brent Piniuta - The Sinking of the Invincible
