Next week (26 March) we are delighted to welcome Professor Allen Greer, Canada Research Chair in Colonial North America at McGill University in Canada, to the weekly history seminar here at NUI Galway. Professor Greer’s research interests centre on the history of early Canada in the context of colonial North America and the Early Modern Atlantic World. He is the author of multiple books and articles, a number of which have won national and international awards. Among these publications are La Nouvelle-France et le Monde (2009), The People of New France (1997), The Patriots and the People (1993) and Peasant, Lord and Merchant (1985). An expert in Jesuit mission history and cultural relations, he is also the editor of The Jesuit Relations: Natives and Missionaries in Seventeenth-Century North America (2000), and the author of Mohawk Saint: Catherine Tekakwitha and the Jesuits (2005).
His talk next week will be on ‘Kateri Tekakwitha (1656-80): the Iroquois who converted a Jesuit’. We look forward to seeing you there.
