Memory

  • Mere Journalism

    Peter Stockland

    The role of history is to remind us that the truth can only emerge from what has come before us. Where we were still matters, writes Convivium Publisher Peter Stockland, if only so we can more truly understand where we are.

  • Trying to Find a Place in This World

    Haley Welch

    In the last seven years, Convivium contributor Haley Welch has moved many times: to new neighbourhoods, new provinces, and new countries. To move on (or away) is not equivalent to editing out the reality of that place from her story, she writes.

  • Waiting for Aslan

    Rachel DeBruyn

    An Ottawa production of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe leaves Convivium’s Rachel DeBruyn sensing the anticipation of Advent and the impact of the way in which we remember.

  • Remembering What We Do Not Know

    Rachel DeBruyn

    In her review of Natalie Morrill's debut novel The Ghost Keeper, Convivium's Rachel DeBruyn reminds us that although abundant historical fiction has already been set in the World Wars, fiction retains the power to express truth even where facts are lost.
