Laurier Centre for the Study of Canada

Laurier’s Centre for the Study of Canada (LCSC) exists to foster research, education, and discussion of the ideas, communities, and histories of Canada. The faculty and students of the LCSC strive to contribute to both academic and popular conversations about the nation, and promote an open forum to discuss historical and contemporary conflicts, identities, and narratives.

The Centre consists of four research “clusters” which focus on specific aspects of Canadian history: War and Society, Publics and Social Justice, Policy Connections for Canada, and Communities. Each cluster includes both faculty and students working in collaboration on a diverse spectrum of projects drawing on a variety of disciplines.

Fostering student-faculty partnerships and public outreach are key goals of the LCSC. Each semester the Centre hires graduate and undergraduate students for practical training in ongoing research projects, provides paid mentorship opportunities for students to work with professors, and produces academic content for public consumption across a variety of platforms.

LCSC was previously called the Laurier Centre for Military, Strategic, and Disarmament Studies (LCMSDS) and continues to maintain the LCMSDS library and archival holdings.
