Student Earns Award, Canadian Studies Profs. Organize, Lead Discussions at Biennial Meeting

Three members of St. Lawrence University’s Canadian Studies department represented the University recently at The Association for Canadian Studies in the United States’ biennial meeting, which was held in Montréal, Québec, late last year.

Assistant Professor and Chair of Canadian Studies Neil S. Forkey organized eight panels as the Section Chair for History papers, while Robert W. Thacker, Dana Professor of Canadian Studies and English Emeritus, chaired two panels.

Piskor Professor of Canadian Studies Joseph T. Jockel was a panelist for a roundtable discussion on Canada’s participation in the War in Afghanistan, and was also a panelist for a similar discussion about international challenges to the new government, following Canada’s most recent election.

Victor J. Locke ’21, who is pursuing a Canadian Studies-Government combined major, received the Jeanne Kissner Undergraduate Essay in Humanities Award for his research paper titled, “Land of Hope and Dreams:  American Draft Dodgers in Canada During the Vietnam War,” which he wrote for Forkey’s Junior/Senior Seminar during the Spring 2019 semester.
