Assistant Professor Michel Hogue, Carleton University

Michel Hogue teaches in indigenous and Canadian history. At the University of Wisconsin, he coordinated a two-week summer course that took students from Wisconsin to the U.S. Southwest and back. Called “The Santa Fe Trail: In Search of the Multiracial West,” the course took students directly to the sites of history and helped them develop a more sophisticated historical understanding of issues of race and ethnicity in the West. He was involved in working with partners to coordinate tours, lectures, panel discussions, and other activities along the route, as well as many of the logistical details for the
journey. More recently, he worked with colleagues to develop the ArtsOne course cluster, “I am Canadian (or Am I?),” a year-long inter-disciplinary exploration into issues of Canadian and indigenous history, culture, and identity for first-year students. This included hosting an on-campus poetry slam and field trips across the National Capital Region.

He has experience as a public historian outside the academy, has published extensively in the fields of public history and cultural policy, and has been active in key public history organizations both locally and nationally. One of his interests is the origins of the Ontario heritage establishment, which emerged out of the same era of nation-building historiography that elevated Champlain to the founders’ pantheon and integrated him into the province’s myth of origins. He has coordinated several collaborative projects between the academy and community partners, and has supervised dozens of internships and practicums through which students have gained practical training in the field of public history.
