Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21

On the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Alexandra Novosseloff will share her research on borders and walls, gleaned from a two-year journey while preparing her book, Des murs entre les hommes (Walls between Men). A roundtable discussion featuring Halifax experts will follow this talk and expand upon the idea of walls and borders – both physical and conceptual. Do they serve the same function?

This event is organized in partnership with the Royal Society of Canada (RSC), the Alliance française, the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, Dalhousie University, Saint Mary’s University, the University of King’s College and is sponsored by the RSC, Immigration francophone, the Conseil Communautaire du Grand Havre, the Alliance française and the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research of the University of King’s College.

Event mostly in French. Free entrance with light refreshments.
