This is a collective research project undertaken by students of History 3315 at the University of Ottawa. As a project in the digital humanities, the goal of our collective effort is to bring together documents from diverse sources and build up collections around related themes in global history in order to bring into the light the hidden hand that often subtle shaped the trajectory of postcolonial history. Many thanks to the University of Ottawa, Morisset Library and Roxanne Lafleur for hosting this exhibit and helping in this project.
