History Events on Campus This Week

The final event to celebrate wrestling at the University of Saskatchewan will be held on October 29. Nathan Hatton will speak on "Thrashing Seasons: Roughness, Respectability and Professional Wrestling on the Canadian Prairies before 1930" (sponsored by the College of Kinesiology and the Department of History). The talk starts at 7:30 in Room 246 at the Physical Activity Complex (PAC).

If you haven't yet had a chance to see the exhibition on "Ring-a-Ding-Dong-Dandy: Glimpses of Wrestling History", it's not too late. The exhibition is on until November 5 at the Murray Library's Link Gallery.

Also on October 29, Sharon Wright from the Department of History at St Thomas More College will be giving a lecture to the CMRS Colloquia Series on "Women, Conflict & Community After the Great Mortality". Refreshments are at 4:00 and the talk begins at 4:30 (Room 344B St Thomas More College).
