Louisbourg 1713 L'Endroit le Plus Convenable, the Most Suitable Place

Starts: October 28th, 2014 - 7:30pm
Where: Maritime Museum of the Atlantic

After the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713, the French and British redrew the boundaries of their claims to Atlantic Canada. This change meant that the French inhabitants of the colony of Plaisance, in Newfoundland, and of Acadia, would have to relocate to remain in French territory. The colony of île Royale (Cape Breton and Prince Edward Islands) was established and a party of French from Newfoundland was tasked to find “the most suitable place” for its capital. They chose Louisbourg, which would soon become one of the busiest and most-strongly fortified ports in the North Atlantic.

In celebration of Louisbourg’s 300th anniversary, documents held in France at the Archives Départmentales Charente Maritime at La Rochelle and la Service historique de la Défense, Rochefort, were brought to Canada for temporary exhibition. These documents witnessed moments of tremendous change, struggle, and uncertainty in the history of this region. They include instructions to the captain who brought the first French colonists to l’île Royale, a Royal decree from September of 1713 protecting the fishery of the new colony of l’île Royale, trade and legal documents of the people of Louisbourg (including papers from a court case for smuggling, and a love letter), a will that granted three slaves their freedom, and a census of refugees in 1761. The documents from ADCM have particular importance as they were rescued from Louisbourg as it fell in 1758 and carried to La Rochelle. Louisbourg’s Admiralty file is the richest such record for New France. Not simply the words on the page, but also the elaborate royal insignia, the pressure mark left by the quill on the linen paper, the smudged ink, and simple or elaborate handwriting evoke the writers’ thought processes, intentions, and hopes. These precious documents convey what the French saw as their connection to this place, how they lived here, and how they reached out to the surrounding world three hundred years ago.

Forgiven/Forgotten

Theatre of the Beat

Starts: October 29th, 2014 - 7:00pm
Where: First Baptist Church

This fall, in partnership with Mennonite Central Committee Maritimes and other organizations supportive of restorative values, Toronto-based troupe Theatre of the Beat will be touring their original drama, Forgiven/Forgotten. This hour-long play will be presented in universities, prisons, high schools and various denominational churches throughout New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island, and will engage communities on concepts of justice and crime.

Forgiven/Forgotten follows a family and their reactions to learning that an ex-offender will be serving his parole in their community. The play is meant to examine the rippling effects of crime and the individuals who get lost in its wake. The result is an emotionally driven piece with a hard-hitting script and talented performers. “The play is designed to get audiences talking” says writer/director Johnny Wideman. That's why the troupe follows up every performance with a “Talk Back,” where the audience is encouraged to process the play with the actors and professionals working in the field.

The Referendum on Scottish independence and After

The UK on the path to quasi-federalism?

Starts: November 22nd, 2014 - 12:30pm
Where: Lord Dalhousie Room, Henry Hicks Building

The referendum on Scottish independence has been a major event for the United Kingdom.  Referendums on secession by a stateless nation in the developed world are rare enough; for one to happen in the UK, with its strong tradition of parliamentary government and representative rather than direct or plebiscitary democracy is more unusual yet.  While the outcome of a No vote was widely expected, the campaign caused serious upheavals not just in Scottish politics but also at UK level. 

The upshot has been a set of commitments to further devolution in Scotland, which will also have knock-on effects for Wales and Northern Ireland.  There are also UK Government commitments to address the ‘English problem’, through ‘English votes for English laws’ in Parliament.  The UK has entered its own era of constitutional mega-politics, in a way it may not have intended or expected.
