Description

CSRS Public Lecture Series

Walking Tours and the Religious Landscape of Victoria
Vincent Gornall, Vandekerkhove Family Trust Graduate Student Fellow, Department of History, UVic

Partnering with The City Talks lecture series sponsored by the UVic Committee for Urban Studies, Vincent Gornall led a series of walking tours on religious themes during the fall of 2013. The discussion-based walks encouraged participants to observe and engage with their urban environment, to build on their knowledge about their city, and to think explicitly about how their values influenced their experiences. Using examples from walks he has led over the years, Gornall will discuss what he has learned about religious institutions, every-day religious/spiritual experiences, and contemporary urban life.

Vincent Gornall is a Masters student in the Department of History at the University of Victoria and a Vandekerkhove Family Trust Graduate Student Fellow at the Centre for Studies in Religion and Society. His research interests include 20th century urban history and public history. His thesis is on urban renewal in the Victoria area.
