Missed last week’s roundup? Check it out here.


That’s it for this week! I think that the roundups have been getting a little shorter lately, though that is likely a reflection of the end of the semester and the lead-up to the CHA. Anyways, as usual, I hope that you enjoyed this roundup. If you did, please consider sharing it on the social media platform of your choice. And don’t forget to check back on Tuesday for our regular Best New Articles post! See you then!

  1. Hello, please note that while the Franklin exhibition was developed by the Canadian Museum of History, the story of Franklin’s 1845 expedition is both a Canadian and British story. It suited both museums that the National Maritime Museum was the venue in 2017 and the Canadian Museum of History, in 2018.

      Hi Éliane! Thanks for the clarification. I understand that given the premiere of the Canadian Hall of History, it makes more sense to postpone the exhibition to 2018, but I still wish we had been able to get it first. 🙁 It sounds fantastic, particularly since the Canadian catalogue is English, French, and Inuktitut, while my understanding is that the British version is only in English.
