Canadian Soldier Mortality on the Home Front, 1914-1919
Dr. Kandace Bogaert, Faculty of Arts


What we can learn from studying soldier deaths in Canada throughout the First World War? From trends in infectious disease mortality to medical discourse surrounding psychiatric illness, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission kept a careful record of soldier deaths on the home front. These records form the starting point of our inquiry.
