Doing Community Heritage Differently: Hear, Hear

Erin’s joined by Dr. Ariel Beaujot (University of Wisconsin, La Crosse) to talk about her postmodern heritage project, Hear, Here. Hear, Here began in La Crosse in 2015 but, under the direction of Dr. Michelle Hamilton (Western University), expanded to London, ON in 2018. Unlike your average walking tour, Hear, Here uses oral histories to make hidden histories visible on the streets of gentrifying/gentrified neighbourhoods.

In our Doing History series, Erin chats with historians about how they “do history” and about how non-written sources can be used as historical sources. In our Frontier on Film series, historians review period dramas and other historically-based films and shows.
