Christopher Dummitt is a professor of Canadian history at Trent University and host of the Canadian history podcast 1867 & All That.

​He specialize in Canada's political, cultural and intellectual history and has a growing a side interest in research methods and issues of academic freedom. His books have focused on the history of Canada's most successful prime minister, the social and legal history of morality, the writing of Canadian history and the history of masculinity.

​He is a regular contributor to The Hub and The Literary Review of Canada and have also published on history, politics, culture and current affairs in places like Quillette, The National Post, The Globe and Mail, The Dorchester Review, The Ottawa Citizen and The Toronto Star.

On this episode we chat about the letter signed by several Canadian Historians that calls out the Canadian Historical Association for promoting a fake consensus by Historians in Canada around the idea that Canada is committing mass genocide. We also chat about Canadian identity, the lack of viewpoint diversity in academia, and we explore what activists get wrong about figures like Sir John A. Macdonald and Adolphus Egerton Ryerson.
