Dr. Beatriz de Alba-Koch - New Faculty Member

Thematic interests include Indigenous and mestizo accounts of the Spanish Conquest, utopian thought, female spirituality, and Ibero-American as well as Ibero-Asian Baroque culture. I am currently working on early modern atrium and roadside crosses erected in the Iberian metropolitan and overseas world as vehicles of conversion and resistance.

Controversial Characters in Context - Matthew Baillie Begbie, September 5th - Open to Public

To understand the issues raised by recent controversies around renaming and destatuing it is important to learn as much as we can about the historical characters in the news before we decide the best route forward. To move forward in the spirit of “truth and reconciliation” we need to know the truths of our past. Four historians will present brief “warts and all” biographies of four historical figures in the news: John A. Macdonald, Joseph W. Trutch, Matthew Baillie Begbie and James Douglas and put them in their historical context to help inform public discussion. Each talk will be followed by a discussion to inform such questions as “how should we remember these characters and their contexts?” and/or “to commemorate or not commemorate?” All talks will take place in Council Chambers, City Hall, 1 Centennial Square, Victoria, B.C. 7-8:30 pm. FREE EVENT - OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
