A Supernatural History of Toronto
A SUPERNATURAL HISTORY OF TORONTO

THIS COURSE WILL RETURN IN THE AUTUMN OF 2023!

You can learn a lot about a city through the stories of the strange things said to lurk in its shadows. In four online lectures, we'll explore Toronto's past through tales of phantoms, monsters and mythical beasts. Whether it's the terrifying creature spotted in the tunnels beneath Cabbagetown, the sea serpent rumoured to live in the depths of Lake Ontario, or the unicorns hidden all over town, the supernatural stories told about our city illuminate the history of the place we call home.

Explore that history with the best-selling author of The Toronto Book of the Dead and The Toronto Book of Love, host of the Canadiana documentary series, and recipient of an honourable mention for a Governor General's History Award.


FORMAT: The course will include weekly lectures on Zoom with a chance to interact and ask questions, as well as a list of recommended readings & links. Each class will last approximately 1 to 1.5 hours. Every lecture will also be available to stream online later for anyone who has to miss a class.

DATES: TBD.

TIME: TBD.

COST: $75 + tax.
