“A Disposition to Carry on a Winter’s Campaign”: British Winter Military Operations during the War of 1812
NiCHE
by Jake Breadman
2d ago
This is the eighth post in the Winter in Canada series edited by M. Blake Butler and Ben Bradley. By December 1812, two seasonally late American invasions of Niagara had been repelled by a combined force of Britons, Upper Canadians, and Indigenous peoples at Queenston Heights and Frenchman’s Creek. It is no surprise that the commander of British forces in North America, Sir George Prevost, remarked that the Americans had shown “a Disposition to carry on a Winter’s Campaign.”[1] During the winters of 1812-1813 and 1813-1814, the British conducted at least three overland winter marches from Fred ..read more

Since most people have never been to a glacier, repeat photographs—juxtapositions of old photographs and recent re-creations taken from the same perspective at the same time o ..read more

Bringing Winter Indoors: The Environment of Curling in Canada
NiCHE
by Colin Coates
1w ago
This is the seventh post in the Winter in Canada series edited by M. Blake Butler and Ben Bradley. Arguably more than any other sport, curling is quintessentially Canadian. It is one of the only sports (okay, women’s hockey must be mentioned as well) in which Canadians expect their national teams to win at the international level. It’s true that they don’t always win, but the anticipation is real. Even though there are excellent teams in other countries, Canadian curling has more depth than anywhere else. In the World Curling Rankings, four of the top ten men’s and women’s teams come from Cana ..read more

Eco-empathy: a photographic exploration of solastalgia
NiCHE
by Michelle Ferreira
1w ago
A few years back, my then-ten-year-old daughter deliberated, “If our planet is in danger, then we are in danger, too.” As a mother, my concern for climate has become more personal and heightened as the world’s future becomes more volatile. We have raised our children to be eco-citizens. We do not steer away from hard truths or smooth over complex issues, but we address them openly, safely, and discuss them in an age-appropriate way. Talking about our climate-changing world with our children can feel overwhelming. It is heartbreaking to witness their puzzled expressions when they question why a ..read more
