In 2022, the University of Manitoba’s Centre for Human Rights Research annual seminar series was held online, and ran in conjunction with a senior/honours course in the Department of History, Faculty of Arts. Our theme was “Historic Wrongs and Human Rights in Canada.” Leading scholars from across Canada discussed their research examining different moments of dispossession, unfreedom, incarceration, and expulsion, and how researchers and curators have navigated them.
