Event Summary

FREE. Everyone welcome. No RSVP required. Seating is limited, however, so arrive early! Light appetizers and a cash bar will be available.

The PUBlic Professor Series — a monthly, thought provoking series of pub-style talks that brings a range of experts and researchers from across the arts and sciences to the community for a spirited conversation.

Join women & gender studies professor, Dr. Jo-Anne Fiske, as she explores "Remarkable Husbands and Unusual Fathers. Understanding the Great War a Crucible of Tenderness and Nurture."

Centennial commemorations of the Great War of 1914 to 1918 are marked by some common narratives of what occurred and what has been learned from this conflict. Predominate are two social constructions of the citizen soldiers who served Canada: men who returned suffering “shell shock” through their lifetime and silent veterans who never spoke of their war experiences, particularly their experiences in the trenches.

In this talk, based on my personal reminiscences as a daughter of a Canadian veteran of this war, my conversations with children of veterans of the English, German and Austrian forces, and archival records I explore a different understanding of war experiences and how they may have contributed to veterans’ nurturing family relationships.

With special thanks to our talk sponsor: Alger Zadeiks Shapiro LLP
