Program Title: DR JOHN LUTZ - Victoria in the Steps of the Transformers - Indigenous and Settler Spaces
Description: Victoria is a storied place with many layers. For example, few are aware that Xehals, the great transformers of the Coast Salish world stopped here as they “made the world right” -- creating parts of Victoria’s landscape still visible today. In this UVic Café Historique talk, historian John Lutz takes us on a tour of some the places where Indigenous and colonial transformers did their work and explores some of the legacies. Victoria will never look the same to you.

Host(s): Dr Jill Walshaw, Associate Professor and Undergraduate Coordinator History, UVic
Featured Speakers/Guests: Dr. John Lutz is the current Chair of the Department of History at UVic. An alumni of UVic who received his PhD in History from the University of Ottawa, his dissertation, "Work, Wages and Welfare in Aboriginal-Non-Aboriginal Relations in British Columbia, 1849-1970," won the Governor General's Gold Medal and the Eugene Forsey prize for the best dissertation in labour history. After his Ph.D. he was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia (Geography), the University of Washington (History) and the University of Victoria (History). He joined the faculty at the University of Victoria in 1997. His current area of study is the history of Indigenous-Settler relations and more broadly the history of the creation and interaction of different racial groups in the Pacific Northwest, the traditional home of the Coast Salish People whose word for 'worthless people' also meant 'people who do not know their history.'   His books include:  Makúk: A New History of Aboriginal-White Relations (2008) Making and Moving Knowledge: Interdisciplinary and Community-based Research for a World on the Edge (2008) Myth and Memory: Stories of Indigenous-European Contact (2007) Situating Race and Racism in Time, Space and Theory: Critical Essays for Activists and Scholars (2005) Articles: "Turning Space Inside Out: Spatial History and Race in Victorian Victoria" (2014) "Vanishing the Indians: Aboriginal Labourers in Twentieth-Century British Columbia" (2012) "Making the Inscrutable, Scrutable: Race and Space in Victoria’s Chinatown, 1891" (2011) "First Contact as a Spiritual Performance: Aboriginal - Non-Aboriginal Encounters on the North American West Coast" (2007) "Myth Understandings: First Contact, Over and Over Again" (2007) Prizes: Craigdarroch Award for Innovation and Entrepreneurship 2012 Harold Innis Prize for the Best Book in Social Sciences in Canada, 2010 Canadian Historical Association, Clio Award for the best book in B.C.
