W.C. Desmond Pacey Lecture
Tony Tremblay, Professor of English and Canada Research Chair in New Brunswick Studies at St. Thomas University, will deliver a talk titled “Desmond Pacey at 100: Looking Back at the Legacy” on Wednesday, October 11, 2017, at 5:30pm. The lecture will take place in the Alfred G. Bailey Auditorium, Tilley Hall 102, UNB Fredericton Campus.
In this lecture on the 100th anniversary of the birth of pioneering Canadian literary critic Desmond Pacey, Professor Tony Tremblay examines Pacey’s contributions to Canadian literature, his work to position UNB as a hub of Canadian Studies, and his efforts to professionalize Canadian criticism, thus removing from it the biases of class, empire, and gentlemanly opinion.
The W.C Desmond Pacey Memorial Lecture is organized by the Faculty of Arts at UNB Fredericton and is sponsored by the UNB Associated Alumni.
W. Stewart MacNutt Memorial Lecture
The 2016-17 lecture was held at UNB Fredericton on Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016 at 5:30pm in the Alfred G. Bailey Auditorium, Tilley Hall room 102. “Beware the Canadian Wolf?: The Maritimes and Confederation” was delivered by Dr. Phillip Buckner, Senior Research Fellow from the Institute of Commonwealth Studies at the University of London.
In his presentation, Professor Buckner challenged the notion that confederation was forced on the Nova Scotia and New Brunswick governments.
Dr. Bucker holds a PhD from the University of London and taught history at UNB from 1968 until his retirement in 1999, when he was awarded the title of professor emeritus. He also founded Acadiensis: Journal of the History of the Atlantic Region as well as Acadiensis Press.
Hosted by the faculty of arts, the W. Stewart MacNutt Memorial Lecture honours the late historian, professor and humanitarian for his many contributions to UNB and to the development of Atlantic Canadian history as a field of study.
