Advancing Arts and Humanities Scholarship
The MLC team published 2 monographs, 27 articles and book chapters, and 24 conference papers. Despite the move from 111 Gerrard to 415 Yonge, it’s been a productive year with many supporters and visitors! See the MLC Impact Report 2021–2022.

Our book I Can Only Paint: The Story of Battlefield Artist Mary Riter Hamilton won the C.P.
