1914: A Turning Point in History And Culture

If you’re in the mood for some lecture action tonight the University of Regina is presenting another talk in its series commemorating the 100th anniversary of the start of World War One.

Speaking tonight are Nicholas Carleton, who will discuss “Traumatic Changes in Human Psyche: A Brief History”; and Stuart Wilson, whose talk is titled “On the Economic Impact of the Great War on Canada”.

The lectures go at the JohnArcher Library at the university at 7 p.m., and more information can be obtained by calling 306-585-4213.


A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
