"NORSE / NATIVE CONTACT IN ARCTIC CANADA"
DR. PATRICIA SUTHERLAND
Dr. Sutherland has conducted archaeological research in the Canadian Artic since 1975, most recently investigating contacts between European settlers based in Greenland and Arctic natives during the medieval era. Her research on Baffin Island was featured in the November 2012 edition of National Geographic Magazine and was also the subject of a documentary on CBC's The Nature of Things. She is currently an Adjunct Professor in Carleton and Memorial Universities, and a Research Fellow in the University of Aberdeen, Scotland.
This lecture is jointly sponsored by Trinity College, The Centre for Medieval Studies, the Pontifical Institute for Mediaeval Studies, the Undergraduate Program in Medieval Studies in St. Michael's College, the Canadian Studies Program in University College, the Aboriginal Studies Program, and Centre for Aboriginal Initiatives in the University of Toronto.
A coffee reception will follow the lecture.
