Dr. Michel Beaulieu: ‘Depressingly Fun: The Anatomy of Socialist
Summer Camps in the Great Depression’
Helsinki 16.02.2011 klo 16:18


Dr. Michel Beaulieu
Lakehead University, ON, Canada

‘Depressingly Fun: The Anatomy of Socialist Summer Camps in the Great

Keskiviikkona 16.2.2011 kello 16–18, Talous- ja sosiaalihistorian
seminaarihuone, Snellmaninkatu 14 A, 2. krs.

While a vast amount of scholarship has focused on the activities of
the Communist Party of Canada, little attention has been given to
their activities amongst younger workers. As Paul Mishler's work on
communist political culture in the United States has revealed, the
problem of how to educate children so that they would grow up to be
radicals was an ever present concern for communist leaders. The
presentation will attempt to shed light on this little discussed
aspect of Canadian communism through an analysis of Canadian camp
manuals written by and for Finns in Port Arthur, Ontario during the
early years of the Great Depression.
Dr. Michel Beaulieu holds a PhD in History from Queen's University,
Canada and is currently the Director of the Centre for Northern
Studies and an Associate Professor of Northern History at Lakehead
University, Canada. His work deals with the historical political,
economic, and social issues relating to northern and remote
communities in Canada, particularly issues of transnational labour
and social economy. His books and edited collections include Labour
at the Lakehead: Ethnicity, Socialism, and Politics, 1900-35 (in
press May 2011); North of Superior: An Illustrated History of
Northwestern Ontario (2010); Developments, Definitions, and
Directions in Finnish Language, Literature, and Culture (a 2010
special issue of the Journal of Finnish Studies); Imagining New
Worlds in the New World ( a 2010 special issue of Ontario History);
Final Fantasy and Philosophy (2009); Essays in Northwestern Ontario
Working Class History (2008); and The Lady Lumberjack: An Annotated
Collection of Dorothea Mitchell's Writings (2005). He is currently
completing two edited collections, The Finnish Canadian Experience
for UBC Press and The Finnish Workers Experience for the Migration
Institute at Turku, and a co-authored survey of World Socialism.
