On Nov. 1 Prof. Jain's seminar on The Nature of Landscape (FAH492) took a field trip to the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. That week focused on the Group of Seven, and their relationship with the Canadian wilderness, as key figures of Canadian settler colonial nationalism. The McMichael is a veritable shrine to the Group of Seven: its collection not only began with - and primarily showcases - the Group of Seven, but its grounds also include Tom Thomson's shack (relocated from Rosedale) and a cemetery where six of the Group are buried!
