Two-Spirit Oral History Collection

  • CA UWA 22.14
  • Collection
  • 2022

This collection consists of four interviews in total (04hh18mm58ss), conducted by Jenny Foidart and Nicole Murdock, coordinated by Corser du Pont and initiated by the University of Winnipeg Archives.

The objective of the Two-Spirit Oral History Project was to record Two-Spirit histories for future generations by sharing their lived experiences, with an emphasis on Elders and Knowledge-Keepers. The stories of Two-Spirit people have been mostly absent from history owing to white settler colonization and discrimination within communities, including within Indigenous and LGBTQ+ communities. These stories will help to provide source material for new histories, research, and creative works about Two-Spirit people, and they may also assist young people who are struggling to come to terms with being Two-Spirit through these examples.

Robert Young fonds

  • CA UWA 17.029, 19.014, 22.03
  • Fonds
  • 1942 - 2021

Fonds is comprised of three accessions. 17.029 reflects Dr. Young’s career as an academic historian. In that role, he taught and lectured as a Professor, both at the University of Winnipeg as well as academic conferences or lecture series; he published a breadth of scholarly literature and research, and served to review the drafts of his peers for publication; and he involved himself in administrative, educational, and community issues at the University of Winnipeg. For his outstanding teaching and research, he also received a number of awards both from the University of Winnipeg and beyond. Fonds includes records produced by all of these activities. Dr. Young’s specialty as an academic historian was Interwar French History, and 20th Century European History more broadly; the majority of his teaching, research, and writing focused on this topic. Fonds also includes correspondence – written or email – with a wide variety of present and former students, fellow scholars and Professors, University administrators, editors, politicians, archivists, and other individuals. To a lesser degree, the fonds also documents Dr. Young’s early life and education prior to his hiring by the University of Winnipeg in 1967, and the continuation of his career after retirement in 2008.

Fonds is arranged in seven series that represent different facets of Dr. Young’s career. The first, University Career, represents Dr. Young’s involvement with the University of Winnipeg through activism on University issues, service on committees, awards he received for his work as a Professor, and administrative documentation such as his annual activity reports or his curriculum vitae. It also contains some of his coursework from his undergraduate and graduate programs. The second, Books, is related to his published monographs: primarily in terms of their editing, publication, and promotion, but also Dr. Young’s using them in class assignments. The third, Teaching, contains teaching material from his various courses; several extracurricular lectures he gave; and correspondence with former students. The fourth, Scholarly Pursuit contains records from his published scholarly articles, book chapters, participation in academic conferences, and book reviews written by him or about his work. The fifth is Scholarly Correspondence and contains the exchanges, by print or email, he carried on with other individuals or institutions related to his ongoing research on France in the Interwar Period and other European history. The sixth is UW Institutional, which documents Dr. Young’s involvement with University programs (such as the European Studies Group). And finally, the seventh, Artifacts, contains some of his academic diplomas, his bound PhD and Masters theses, video and audio recordings of his lectures, and albums and scrapbooks commemorating aspects of his life and career.

19.014 reflects Dr. Young’s involvement with the administration and activities of the University of Winnipeg Club, particularly as its President and Past-President. Fonds includes records from the Club Board and Annual General Meetings; its financial and corporate records; material from its various promotions, fundraisers, and seasonal events; and correspondence, primarily Dr. Young’s email correspondence.

22.03 is primarily comprised of email correspondence between Dr. Young and University of Winnipeg faculty, staff, alumni, and students during his post-teaching career as a Senior Scholar. The emails were printed and organized by Dr. Young. Includes also several of his earlier awards and degrees.

Carlos Sosa Interview

This series consists of 1 interview with Carlos Sosa, conducted by Emily McPherson in 2021.

This interview was conducted in 2021 by Emily McPherson as part of a practicum at the OHC, undertaken in the context of the Master’s of Human Rights Program at the University of Manitoba. After indexing and processing the Manitoba League of Persons with Disabilities Oral History Project as part of her practicum work, McPherson identified that a significant omission to the collection was an interview with Carlos Sosa, who due to his role as Project Coordinator, had not himself been interviewed. The interview was intended to be a compliment to the original collection, and followed the original intention: “to better understand ‘the formation and development of the Manitoba League of Persons with Disabilities and its contribution to the national and international movement to secure legal and social equality for persons with disabilities.’”
