Working with Ontario Heritage Trust, students 'rethink the stories told' about Canada's built environment
Art history students are hoping to breathe new life into an important group of Ontario heritage buildings, offering narratives and ideas to better preserve some of the province’s most treasured structures.
Students from the fourth-year Canadian art history seminar, Studies in Canadian Architecture and Landscapes: Hidden Canada, have been involved in a semester-long research project in partnership with the Ontario Heritage Trust (OHT). Supported by the provost’s Learning & Education Advancement Fund, the course is offered as part of the department of art history’s Canada Constructed initiative.
“The course explores how the built environment in Canada has been written, studied and preserved, with particular attention paid to which narratives have been privileged and which have been suppressed,” says Jessica Mace, who is the course’s instructor and an art history post-doctoral researcher.
