The University of Manitoba’s Centre for Ukrainian Canadian Studies is proud to present the 2005 Professor Michael and Dr. Iraida Tarnawecky Distinguished Lecture on Canada’s Enemy Aliens During the First World War: The Predicament of Belonging by Dr. Bohdan Kordan.
Dr. Kordan is a professor of Political Science at the University of Saskatchewan and the former director of the Prairie Centre for Ukrainian Heritage Studies at St. Thomas More College.
The internment of aliens of enemy nationality during the First World War has often been attributed to xenophobia and yet the archival evidence does not support this contention. Internment forced the articulation of important categories, highlighting the problem of “belonging” in 1914 Canada.
This lecture will be introduced by Dr. John R. Wiens (Dean, Faculty of Education).
