David Dean, Professor of History, Carleton University & Danielle Mahon, MA student in Public History and Digital Humanities at Carleton University
What better way to share the fascinating history of our city than to take it directly to the streets and sidewalks of Ottawa? These artful, interactive and informative kiosks began appearing throughout the city four years ago. Dr. Dean tells us about the intricate collaboration behind this ingenious project and what an eye-opening experience it is for the dozens of students he engages in researching the amazing stories of Ottawa's past. Danielle will showcase the newly re-imagined and re-designed associated website capitalhistory.ca.
All are welcome to attend without charge.
