The Return of History? N.L. After the Oil Boom and the Hydro Bust
Thursday, April 29, 7:30-8:30 p.m.
Please join us as Dr. Jerry Bannister explores the changing roles of history since the province’s economic downturn. He traces patterns in political culture and collective memory from the Williams era to the present day, as the province experienced the end of triumphalism and the return to a politics of loss.
In discussing the causes and consequences of the Muskrat Falls crisis, Dr. Bannister examines the ebb and flow of Newfoundland nationalism over the past twenty years. In doing so, he questions whether the province is now returning to its twentieth-century narrative or breaking with its past.
7:30 pm (Newfoundland Standard Time)
