In Wounded Feelings: Litigating Emotions in Quebec, 1870-1950, Eric Reiter traces the intimate experience of having our feelings hurt – given a more adult shape in forms such as shame, disgrace, bodily intrusion, betrayal, grief, anger and fear – through Quebec’s court system from the late-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century. 

Dr. High will receive the Pierre Burton Award for popular media: 

Steven High is a leading oral and public historian whose research empowers individuals and broadens understanding of Canada’s multi-faceted history.
