Title: Canadian Soldier Mortality
Venue: FirstOntario Arts Centre Milton
Description:

 

Canadian Soldier Mortality on the Home Front, 1914-1919

Dr. Kandace Bogaert, Faculty of Arts

 

What we can learn from studying soldier deaths in Canada throughout the First World War? From trends in infectious disease mortality to medical discourse surrounding psychiatric illness, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission kept a careful record of soldier deaths on the home front. These records form the starting point of our inquiry.

The lecture series is a partnership between the Town of Milton, Wilfrid Laurier University, and the Milton Public Library.

Admission is free. No registration is required. All lectures take place from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
