Queen's University is situated on the territories of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe peoples. We at the DSC recognise issues faced by Indigenous communities both past and present and endeavour to make our spaces inclusive to people of all different backgrounds and worldviews.

Discover The Watson

Home to the Queen's University History DSC

We're thrilled you’re here! Members of the Queen's University History Department Student Council have worked hard to create an inclusive and diverse DSC, and therefore we have decided to open up our blog to student submissions. We hope that The Watson becomes a space in which History students can celebrate their interests with passion and enthusiasm, where we can connect with each other in a new way. 


Student submissions can be emailed to hist.dsc@asus.queensu.ca.

Further details are found under Submit.
