Sydney Taylor Memorial Lecture
Sydney Taylor was a Politics student (BAH ’13) who tragically left us on May 7, 2013, the week before her convocation. In her memory, the Department of Politics and the Acadia Politics Students’ Association (APSA) have established a lecture series, focused on her interests in human rights and the environment.

H.T. Reid Lecture Series
Acadia University's H.T. Reid Lecture series, a collaboration of the Department of History and Classics and the Department of Politics, was established in 1958 in order to give the opportunity to an “eminent scholar or person of affairs” to publicly address the university community on issues of politics and history. Although the lecture was originally intended to address issues concerning the British Commonwealth, the committee is excited to explore contemporary social, economic, and political issues at global, national, regional and local levels. Nova Scotia’s rich and contested history (including Mi’kmaq /Settler relations, the Acadian Expulsion, and the Afro-Nova Scotian experience) offers an important context in which H.T. Reid Lecture awardees are able to explore historical and contemporary political issues.
