Digital Teaching & Research project headed by Laurie Bertram on the Sex Trade in Toronto featured in Globe & Mail

May 1, 2016

Over the past year, Professor Laurie Bertram has been engaging her 400 level seminar students in a research project to plot the geographical location of the sex trade in 19th century Toronto: where were the brothels? The arrests and prosecutions? The ‘reformatories’ meant to encourage women to leave the profession? Professor Bertram, along with 12 students and a team of library staff members, has turned up some interesting results. The project's findings are featured in an exhibition and digital map, profiled in The Globe and Mail.
