June 30, 2016 is the formal date of retirement of Peter Seixas, who was the founding director of the Centre for The Study of Historical Consciousness.  To mark his retirement, the Centre sponsored a day of celebration on March 12, including an international symposium on the theme, “Coming of Age,” and a dinner.


The one-day symposium, “Coming of Age: Life/Time/History,” included eight senior, international scholars who had been particularly influential in Peter’s career and five younger scholars who had worked with him as graduate students. More details...


The evening dinner was attended by 130 invited guests, hosted by Lindsay Gibson and Carla Peck, with tributes from Penney Clark, Doug Cochran, Kadriye Ercikan and Sam Wineburg, and a response from Peter.  The speeches were followed by enthusiastic dancing to the wild music of the 11-piece band, Top-City Rhythm and Blues.
