Using Captain Vancouver’s Voyage to Examine What is Accomplished By Reconsidering and Rewriting the Past

Colloquium: Lunch Talk | October 4 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 223 Moses Hall

 Lee Gulyas, Western Washington University

 Canadian Studies Program (CAN))

This talk regards the earliest mapmakers, “Whose imaginations were usually more reliable than their sources,” and how they portrayed what would become Canada as an amorphous blob of unknown dangers. These works explore landscape, imagination, and identity to point to larger questions of history, story, and what is accomplished by reconsidering and rewriting the past.
