Reflections about Fort York

I attended a Citizenship Ceremony at Fort York some years ago; I found the occasion inspiring:

Citizenship Ceremony at Fort York, April 26, 2013, featured sharing of thoughts about what it means to be a Canadian

The topic of citizenship brings to mind two previous posts:

Gender, condominium development, and urban citizenship

The Government Next Door: Neighborhood Politics in Urban China (2015) addresses the translation of hegemonic discourses

As well, I am reminded of a visit to an exhibit at Fort York focusing on General Isaac Brock; I enjoyed the fact that crowds were sparse that day (I thought it was fitting that such exhibits appeal in particular to those people who have an enthusiasm for them):

Mad for Citrus – special event taking place at Fort York on Sat., Feb. 23, 2013

A previous Fife and Drum newsletter gave rise to a post regarding evidence-based practice as it relates to history:

What can we learn about evidence-based practice when we read about Tecumseh?

Some previous posts about Fort York have focused on online history-related maps, a topic I look forward to exploring further:

Always worth a visit: Goad’s Atlas of Toronto – Online

First Story is an interactive map of Toronto’s Aboriginal history

I know a lot about Fort York through conversations over the years with David Juliusson of Long Branch.
