Feminism and the labour movement in Manitoba: Oral Histories from UFCW local 832

Scott Price and Kent Davies will present oral histories and documentations about the growth of feminism within UFCW local 832 and the labour movement in Manitoba. These stories are a part of the wider project on UFCW local 832 that the OHC and local 832 started in the spring of 2012.

Bernstein’s Deli Project

Despite its changing form, the delicatessen still remains an important cultural landmark and symbol for Jews in North America. Lauren Finkel and Hayley Caldwell illustrate how Bernstein's Deli, located in Winnipeg's South End, continues to carry meaningful significance in a post-modern world while adjusting to migration within and outside of the city, secularization, and class mobility.

Inquiries into Franco-Manitoban Métis Identities

After generations as French-Canadians, many Franco-Manitoban families are rediscovering their Métis heritage and reclaiming ancestral identities. Matt Tétreault will discuss this Métis resurgence in the Franco-Manitoban community.

Traditional Foods: Local histories from Fisher River Cree Nation

Food security and food sovereignty is becoming more of a point of interest, as there is an increasing awareness that food and its associated systems are directly linked to health, wellbeing, identity and culture. Brielle Beaudin will be presenting on behalf of her research team, who recently conducted a project that used oral history to explore traditional foods in a Manitoban First Nation community, Fisher River Cree Nation.

Everyone is welcome.
