Hear history and legacy of Huronia Regional Centre – Feb. 21

FLASHBACK FEBRUARY:
EXPLORING OUR PAST
As part of Flashback February, join us to learn about our shared history with a talk presented by Trent University Ph.D. candidate Katharine Viscardis: The History and Legacy of the Huronia Regional Centre. Katharine will talk about the history and legacy of Canada’s first institution designed for children and adults with disabilities, the Huronia Regional Centre (1887-2009). It outlines the violent experiences of children who were admitted there, considers how such violence against children could occur for so long in a state-run facility, and questions how much has changed in the lives of survivors and children with disabilities after the institution’s closure in 2009. It asks, does institutionalization truly end with the closure of physical spaces of incarceration?
