Dr. James Fraser

Dr. James Fraser, a history professor in the College of Arts, spoke with Postmedia about his course on Canadian football and its role in shaping the country’s history.  

The article appeared in several publications across Canada, including the Toronto Sun. 

“I began to realize the different ways in which what I was doing wasn’t just giving the students an opportunity to learn about Canadian football, I was really talking about Canada in all sorts of different ways,” he said. 

Fraser researches political culture, ethnicity and social history in the Department of History.  The course on football is a section of the first-year course “Invitation to History.”
