Dr Gupta is a co-applicant on the grant which will support an upcoming symposium entitled “Circles of Interaction: the Wendat and their Neighbours in the Time of
Champlain” to be held between October 16 and 18th. The conference in Midland, Ontario – the heart of historic Huronia – will examine change and continuity in the relationship between the Wendat, their neighbours and the French in the region. The program includes a day-long session hosted by the Huron-Wendat First Nation and a session on emerging multidisciplinary themes and trends on the Wendat past that Dr Gupta will chair. Dr Gupta is SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow in Geography working with Dr Rodolphe Devillers on developing geographic visualization for archaeology.
