The Canadian War Museum will be hosting a bilingual academic conference in January 2019. Planned in conjunction with the exhibition Victory 1918 – The Last 100 Days and in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, it will feature international and Canadian historians, including Margaret MacMillan, Michael Neiberg, Catriona Pennell, J. L. Granatstein, David Bercuson and Tim Cook. The speakers will explore a wide range of topics, including the return of Indigenous veterans, the war’s impact on French Canada, nurses’ contributions during the war, and the many legacies of the First World War.
