Exhibition Launched by Dr. Cameron and Alicia Alves

Be sure to check out the work of Dr. Brooke Cameron and doctoral candidate Alicia Alves, featured at W.D. Jordan Library until March 4th. Their virtual exhibit, entitled "Little Wanderers: A Literary History of the British Home Children in Canada," features texts by prominent social reformers documenting the dire situation of the working-class and poor people in the Victorian city. It also includes nineteenth-century education and adventure fiction for children—works that often celebrate colonialism as a means to self-reform and social belonging.

The exhibit can be found here, and the exhibition talk can be found below
