Coming of Age: Life/Time/History
A celebration of Peter Seixas’ career, in anticipation of his retirement
9:00-3:15, March 12, 2016
Peter Wall Institute, UBC
“Coming of Age: Life/Time/History” alludes to an intersection between life course and history, an intersection that can be interpreted in many ways. The title challenges speakers to examine people’s lives, including their own, in relation to the histories they confront and construct, in the context of the historical moment in which they find themselves. Participants include senior, international scholars who have been influential in Peter’s career and a roughly equal number of younger scholars who worked with him as graduate students.
Registration deadline: Feb. 28, or when seating capacity is reached. (No fee, but registration required.)
