University College (UC)
, ON

The History Department will be hosting Professor Lori Chambers as the latest speaker for the 2023 J.J. Talman Lecture Series.

Lori Chambers is Professor in the Department of Gender and Women’s Studies, Lakehead University. She specializes in legal history and contemporary legal issues, with a focus on adoption, intimate partner and sexual violence, and human rights legislation.

Diverse sources such as archival materials, legal data bases, legislation, and newspapers are very useful for story-telling in the study of law. Dr Chambers will provide examples of how she has utilized all of these sources in various ways, particularly to tell single-person stories that build out from one case. She will focus on the case Martinie v The Italian Society of Port Arthur (1995). Giovannina (Joanne) Ruberto, a young Italian Canadian woman living in Thunder Bay, submitted a membership application to the all-male fraternal Italian Mutual Benefit Society of Port Arthur (presently the Italian Society of Port Arthur).

This event will be hosted In-person in Conron Hall, University College (Room 3110) and reception will follow immediately.
