Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

The History Education Network/Histoire et éducation en réseau (THEN/HiER) held this symposium in Ottawa, June 4-5, 2015 with participants from across Canada. With a focus on recent developments in telling the history of Sir John Franklin’s last expedition, the symposium brought Canada's leading experts in history education together with historians, Inuit cultural advisors, underwater archaeologists, curriculum specialists from Nunavut and the Northwest Territories (NWT), and teachers from northern and southern Canada.

The event was held in conjunction with the launch of the new website The Franklin Mystery: Life and Death in the Arctic, the latest addition to the Great Unsolved Mysteries in Canadian History (GUMICH) project.
