This event is part of Research Month 2019. Visit our website for a full list of events.

Presenters:    Donald Calabrese; Andy Parnaby; Tom Urbaniak

In Donald Calabrese’s work-in-progress COADY, a graphic novel about the social and economic reformer Moses Coady, he considers what became of the 20th Century cooperative and labour movements that defined–and continue to define–the identities of many Atlantic Canadians.

In 2016 Dr. Andrew Parnaby contributed his research to the anthology of graphic history Drawn To Change: Graphic Histories of Working Class Struggles. He will discuss the intersections of history and art, and how one translates into the other.

Dr. Tom Urbaniak volunteers actively in a number of community development projects and organizations. Coinciding with the 80th anniversary of the publication of Moses Coady’s Masters of the own Destiny, his talk will offer reflections on the ongoing relevance of that book and Coady’s work.!
