Internal Keynote and Banquet


The Banquet is always a highlight of the conference weekend. This ticketed event includes an excellent dinner, a Keynote Address and a DJ'ed dance. It provides a great evening of socializing among peers and faculty and is not to be missed!

This year's banquet will be hosted at the Sandman Hotel downtown. Head to the following link for ticket sales:

2019 TRU Internal Keynote Speaker: Dr. Wilson Bell

Dr. Bell's research focuses on the Gulag prison camps in the Soviet Union under Stalin. Particular interests include the mobilization of forced labour during WWII, black market activity in the camps, illicit sexual activity in the camps, and the interaction between the Gulag and Soviet society more generally.

We are so excited that Dr. Bell has just published his new book this December titled Stalin's Gulag at War: Forced Labour, Mass Death, and Soviet Victory in the Second World War and we are looking forward to his keynote fresh off this publication on January 19th!
