The Case for Naming Queen’s Law Building after Dr. Patricia Monture

In endorsement of the resounding call to rename Sir John A Macdonald Hall after Dr. Patricia Monture, PSAC Local 901 hired a member to research into the history of the building and its current name, and also Dr. Monture’s period at Queen’s and her struggles, as a student, for equity on campus, as well as her contributions towards legal thought, as a legal scholar and educator.

We are proud to present the final report before our members titled The Case for Naming Queen’s Law Building after Dr. Patricia Monture, written by Samuel Tsegai, a PhD student and 901 member at the Department of History. This report is open-access and can be circulated widely in service of the campaign.

“Not being in the process of naming…serves as one of the most express examples of silencing that I can think of.” Patricia Monture, Thunder in My Soul
