From the Archive to the Classroom: An Introduction to the Edition of Jesuit Historical Documents

When and Where

Friday, March 01, 2024 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm

Join us for a workshop designed to acquaint graduate and undergraduate students with the historian’s craft of deciphering, transcribing, annotating, and editing early sources in Canadian Jesuit history. As a case study, we will delve into François Gendron’s Quelques particularitez du Pays des Hurons en la Nouvelle France (1660) and seek participants’ input on a TJHRG pilot project. The project aims to create teaching resources focused on the legacy of Saint-Marie-Among-the-Huron, the headquarters of the Jesuit mission to the Huron-Wendat from 1639 to 1649. On the surgeon François Gendron (1618-1688)’s connection to Sainte-Marie, visit "François Gendron" on the Dictionary of Canadian Biography.

TJHRG Contributors: Mairi Cowan, Andreas Motsch, Jean-Olivier Richard, Robert Twiss
