Leaving Canada: The Mennonite Migration to Mexico – Mexico Mennonites and Nostalgia for ‘Old Canada’ – Webinar

Nov 1, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Format: Webinar


The final event in the “Leaving Canada” speaker series features Royden Loewen, professor emeritus at the University of Winnipeg, where he held the Chair in Mennonite Studies. Loewen will give a webinar presentation on the transnational mindset of Mennonites in Mexico during the 1930s and 1940s, and the mythical hold of Canada on the migrant Mennonite imagination. As he will demonstrate, whether expressed as yearnings for their old homeland or voiced as antipathy toward the country they felt had betrayed them, Canada could not be left behind.
