this is the home page of matthew barlow. phd. here i ponder questions of public history, identity, space, post-coloniality, diaspora, transationality, punk rock, hip hop, and pretty much anything else i fancy. i have made numerous appearances in the media in montréal, québec, and canada, and even internationally, talking about a whole range of items, from the history of victorian railways in montréal to the importance of st. patrick’s day to the history of punk rock and the 100th anniversary of the club de hockey canadien (aka: the montréal canadiens). a montrealer by birth, i have also lived in toronto, hamilton, victoria, nanaimo, vancouver, ottawa, western massachusetts, boston, and alabama. i currently live in the mountains of tennessee.
