Book Launch: Moved by the State

Thursday, January 30, 2020 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
UBC, Ideas Lounge, University Centre, 6331 Crescent Road, Vancouver BC

The UBC Canadian Studies Program and UBC Press present a book launch for Tina Loo's book, Moved by the State: Forced Relocation and Making a Good Life in Postwar Canada.

"Tina Loo is a masterful scholar and in Moved by the State she offers a completely new interpretation of resettlements of the 1950s and ’60s as understood through the lens of high modernism. The result is both revisionist and refreshing." Penny Bryden, author of Canada: A Political Biography

We look forward to seeing you at Ideas Lunch & Wine Bar for lively conversation with friends and colleagues and to join us in a congratulatory toast to Tina Loo and the publication of her new book Moved by the State.

Complimentary food and drinks will be served. If you are planning to attend, kindly register for this event.

Tina Loo is a professor of history at the University of British Columbia. Her previous book is States of Nature: Conserving Canada’s Wildlife in the Twentieth Century. A recipient of Clio and Sir John A. Macdonald prizes from the Canadian Historical Association, as well as the Canada Prize from the Canadian Federation of Humanities and Social Sciences, she is also a member of the Royal Society of Canada.
