Blake Brown on History of Gun Control in Canada (Most Interesting Paper Title at the CHA)

8 05 2009

The presentation listed in the provisional programme of the 2009 meeting of the CHA that most interests me is Dr Blake Brown’s “Disarming the Rogue and the Child: Regulating Revolvers in Late nineteenth Canada” Wednesday, 27 May  830 to 1000.

The history of gun control in Canada is a topic that is both really important and massively understudied. I’m really looking forward to hearing about Dr Brown’s research. Although the research on the history of gun control doesn’t generate the same sort of passions in Canada that it does in the United States,this paper should generate some interesting discussion.

Brown is a young and prolific who has chosen to research some really fundamental historical topics. I’m looking forward to meeting him.
