Colonialism’s Currency, with Brian Gettler

In episode 9 of our Wilson Institute Speaker Series, Self-Isolation Edition, we talk to Brian Gettler about his latest book – Colonialism’s Currency: Money, State, and First Nations in Canada, 1820-1950 – published this past July with McGill-Queen’s University Press. His book analyses the historical experiences and interactions of three distinct First Nations with monetary forms and practices created by colonial powers. Brian and Max also reminisce about the greatness that is Montréal.
