Canada was forged as a nation in World War One—especially at Vimy Ridge when Canadian soldiers from the frontier taught their British and French allies how to fight the Germans. And it is to these soldiers, who defended civilization against barbarism, that we owe our democratic freedoms and our national independence. Or so say the “Vimyists”—those who wish to make war the source of Canadian identity and the First World War the Birth of the Nation. In this lecture, Dr. McKay will argue that these ideas about Canadian history are driven more by present-day politics than by a mature consideration of the complexities and subtleties of the past.

Ian McKay has taught Canadian History at Queen's since 1988. His research interests lie in Canadian cultural history, particularly the history of Canada as a liberal order, Canadian and international left-wing movements and the economic and social history of Atlantic Canada in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Carolyn Abraham was senior science writer for the Globe and Mail for 14 years. Her most recent book, The Juggler's Children, is a memoir that details her efforts to use DNA tests to solve the mysteries of her own family history.

Every Genome Tells a Story: Do you want to know yours?
DNA is like no other molecule, a trove of genetic secrets about your past, your present and your future. Decoding it will soon cost less than a pair of designer shoes, and everyone — doctors, employers, insurance companies, identity thieves and yes, even marketers – may want to peek into yours. But do you? With genetic science still in its infancy, how much ambiguity can you live with, how much anxiety?  And how much would you share, even with family members, who also share your DNA? Carolyn Abraham takes a provocative look at the potential and perils of the genomic age ahead.

This lecture will also be live streamed on Humber
Radio (96.9 fm) and Humber Media Services
(mediaservices.humber.ca).
