Podcast: RCRM Speaker Series
Interested in Canadian history? The RCRM Speakers Series Podcast is now available. Monthly episodes are produced with support from OIART Program Director, Mark Vogelsang.
Season 2 of the RCRM Speakers Series will explore various aspects of loss in the context of military conflict. When this topic attracts scholarly attention, the unthinkable is often revealed. Complex facets of the dynamic between mourning and commemoration, depravation and rejection or disposal of war by-products surface. All of it leaves undeniable traces on the communities found in the path of the clash. The fifth episode of the RCRM Speakers Series, season 2 features Dr. Alex Souchen, who is a historian specializing in warfare, society, and the environment. He is the author of War Junk: Munitions Disposal and Postwar Reconstruction in Canada (UBC Press, 2020).
