SPECIAL PUB LECTURE
For over a century, the intimidating architecture of Canadian prisons inspired sentences to be carried out in solitude and silence.
Set within Ottawa's own historic jail, this lecture will focus on the 19th and early 20th centuries to illustrate how architecture was a critical tool for commmunicating changing ideas regarding criminals and their confinement.
Brittney Anne Bos, PhD Candidate, "Places of Solitude and Silence"
Admission: $10 at the door. Limited seating available.
Cocktail hour with a cash bar begins at 6:00 pm. There will be additional social time after the lecture.
In event of rain, the lecture will be held indoors at Mugshots, in the Jail cellars.
