Almonte Lectures: Is Hi-Tech Only for Rich Countries?

Fri, 28 Oct 2022 - Fri, 28 Oct

Time: 7:30PM

Cost: free; donations accepted

Speaker: Halla Thorsteinsdottir. Enrol for Zoom. Modern technology has contributed immensely to higher incomes and longer lives in rich countries and almost all work in these countries relies heavily on the use of high tech. Low-and-middle income countries lag far behind high-income countries in harnessing technological opportunities but want to emulate rich countries and use technologies to increase their income and enhance quality of life. Many attempts to inject high tech in these countries have, however, had disappointing results. This has led some to argue that low-income countries do not need high tech but rather clean water and better access to existing traditional technologies. In this lecture I plan to consider if and how high tech can be harnessed in low-income countries to the benefit of their populations, and tell stories gleaned from examining technologies in these countries spanning a career of 35 years.

Almonte Lectures: David Thompson - Canada’s Epic Mapmaker

Fri, 25 Nov 2022 - Fri, 25 Nov

Time: 7:30PM

Cost: free; donations accepted

Speaker: Richard van Loon. Enrol for Zoom. 

Between 1797 and 1812, David Thompson travelled over all of western North America from Lake Superior to the headwaters of the Mississippi, to the Athabasca, to James Bay, to the mouth of the Columbia River. In the process, he surveyed, made maps, traded, and kept detailed scientific, but also highly literate journals. The first European into much of the southern Rockies and the mountains and rivers beyond, his relationships with First Nations were unparalleled. With them, he travelled paths of stunning difficulty, and beauty. And for parts of this odyssey he was accompanied by his Cree-Metis wife, Charlotte Small and several young children.
