In 2022, the University of Manitoba’s Centre for Human Rights Research annual seminar series will be online, and run in conjunction with a senior/honours course in the Department of History, Faculty of Arts. Our theme is “Historic Wrongs and Human Rights in Canada.”

Please join us to hear leading scholars from across Canada discuss their research examining different moments of dispossession, unfreedom, incarceration, and expulsion, and how researchers and curators have navigated them.
