Coll Thrush, Associate Professor of History, University of British Columbia
Indigenous and urban histories have usually been treated as though they are mutually exclusive. Coll Thrush’s work, however, has argued that the two kinds of history are in fact interrelated.
In this presentation, Dr. Thrush will present material from his current book project, a history of London framed through the experiences of Indigenous people who travelled here, willingly or otherwise, from territories that became the US, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. Stories of Inuit captives in the 1570s, Cherokee delegations in the 1760s, Hawaiian royals in the 1820s, and more – as well as the memory of these travellers in present-day communities – show the ways in which London is an important ground of Indigenous history and settler colonialism.
