When: 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Where: Herman's Jazz Club

Much of Montreal’s appeal today is due to its reputation as a cosmopolitan city with world-class institutions. But for two centuries before its industrial transformation into a metropolis ruled by a gilded elite, Montreal was a vulnerable frontier outpost and its population—Indigenous, European, and African—swept up in the maelstrom of colonialism. Join Dr Peter Cook for a guided tour through the landscapes of preindustrial Montreal and a reflection on the significance of its colonial past.
