The mystique of money: tax culture and "race" in two centuries

Tuesday, December 10, 2019 7:15 PM - 9:00 PM
Ottawa Art Gallery, 50 Mackenzie King Bridge

The mystique of money is about its power both to hide and to reveal. Using examples from her recent book, Give and Take (on Canada’s 20th century tax history) and from the Dalhousie University inquiry about its connections to race and slavery in the 1810s, Tillotson will explore both sides of the mystique of money and especially its relationship to systems of racial power.

Presented by  The Ottawa Historical Association.

The lecture is FREE and all are welcome. Presentation will be in English.
