The Perils and Joys of Immigration

Brought to you by stevencassidyjessica&jeanieeeee!

This post contains our radio show episode. That jingle you just heard by clicking on that first link was created on GarageBand by Cassidy, because it incorporated what she is doing for In-Depth this year.

As of now, we are the only group in AM TALONS that took a huge risk by doing a live show! I was the sound person, supplying all the effects on my computer, and I didn’t have the hang of playing the sounds on time until after Steven’s dialogue. That was entirely my bad, but I got used to it quickly. – Cassidy

The reason why there are 2 separate recordings is because the cable connecting the microphone to the computer slid out of the microphone for about 10 seconds before it was put back in.

Show Notes

Hope you enjoyed listening!

Video Lecture: Irish Immigration to Canada (1815 – 1914)

Irish Immigration to Canada (1815-1914) from Matt Henderson on Vimeo.

UNLV professor Cian MacMahon visited Winnipeg history teacher Matt Henderson‘s senior history class to talk about Irish immigration to Canada between the War of 1812 and the First World War. The 40’ talk may give some interesting background on today/tomorrow’s Social Class & Immigration section of our Confederation discussions, but also delves into the Rebellions of 1837. 

Matt’s class and blog are consistently great reads for Socials classes in Canada, and anywhere.  Hopefully we find our way toward engaging with his upcoming Canadian Oral History project.
