2020 marks the fiftieth year of Bob Bothwell’s teaching at the University of Toronto. In the half-century since he joined the faculty, he has established himself as one of Canada’s most prominent historians, an enthralling teacher, and a beloved mentor, colleague, and friend. To celebrate his extraordinary career, the International Relations Program, The Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History, Trinity College, and the Department of History are hosting a day-long conference at the University of Toronto on Friday, April 17, 2020.

The conference will feature both academic papers and personal reflections from Bob’s colleagues, students, and friends. The roster of speakers includes John English, Norman Hillmer, and Margaret MacMillan, among others.
