“Revisionist History” is a term whose meaning can have different interpretations, depending on who you ask. Malcolm Gladwell’s popular Revisionist History podcast aims to, “go back and reinterpret something from the past: an event, a person, an idea. Something overlooked. Something misunderstood”. Alternatively, there have also been people and groups who have used the term Revisionist History for erasure, Holocaust deniers being an example of this.
Revisionist Toronto, the theme of this year’s Intersections festival, presents an opportunity to revisit and re-imagine the dominant narratives that shape our understanding of Toronto. Join us for a deep-dive conversation on the topic of revisionist history as our panel navigates the importance of historical re-interpretation and the dangers of erasure.
