Len Findlay pays tribute to his comradeship with Peter Millard in an institution resistant to academic activism. While examining the validity of Intersectionality, Findlay also explores how humanities scholars might learn from a reactionary past and prepare for post-pandemic dangers in Canadian universities.

The Peter Millard Lecture honours Dr. Peter Millard (1932-2001). Dr. Millard, head of the English Department (1985-91), was highly influential in gay and human rights. USask established the Peter Millard Scholarship (1994), Canada’s first university-administered scholarship for research in gay and lesbian studies.
