Seminars and Workshops


Each year, Canadian Studies brings to campus speakers on a wide variety of Canadian topics. Among the speakers on campus in recent years have been Canadian Consul General, Pamela Wallin (one of Canada's best known and most respected television broadcast journalists), General Lewis MacKenzie (former commander-in-chief of United Nations forces), Professor Michael Behiels (University of Ottawa, history and political science and an expert on Canadian federalism and political rights of First Nations), and Professor Gerald Alfred (University of Victoria, expert on Mohawk and other First Nation issues). The audience for the talks include students, faculty, staff and community groups.
