Join Professor John English at Hot Docs Cinema for an enlightening discussion on Pierre Trudeau's influence on Canada under the wave of "Trudeaumania".

Fifty years ago this spring, Pierre Trudeau became Prime Minister of Canada and Trudeaumania swept the nation. This six-week course will take you on an unforgettable journey through the life and times of the Canadian icon. We’ll relive the political excitement of the 1960s and 70s while exploring how and why Trudeau’s image and legacy continue to endure. 

The Director of the Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History at Trinity College, John English is the author of the two-volume biography Just Watch Me: The Life of Pierre Elliott Trudeau, which was chosen as one of the ten best biographies of the decade in 2010 by Indigo and one of the twenty-five most influential Canadian books by the Literary Review of Canada in 2017.
