Welcome to the class research project for History 2813F at Huron University College. Using community-based and archival research, students have created a map documenting the hidden histories of women's antislavery activism in 19th-century Canada West, and Ohio. The class participated in the Lake Erie Borderlands Field School, travelling from London to Oberlin College, and reflecting on the crossborder history of antislavery work in this region. Entries document places and people, and work to establish some sense of the networks and political context that women's antislavery activism helped to shape.
