History of Peterborough County Jail
By Logan Taylor and Laura Schindel, Date of Project Submission: April 2015., Completed for: County of Peterborough; Supervising Professor: Joan Sangster; Trent Community Research Centre, HIST4100 - Topics in Canadian History, This is the study of an institution which stood as a monument of authority for about one-hundred sixty years and then unceremoniously sat dormant for fourteen1. It was structure that saw grave histories like the execution of six men, and the incarceration of people dealing with poverty, addiction and mental illness.2 Therefore, the following is a brief introduction to what is a massive piece of local history.

History of a Student-Led Organization II
By Mason Godden, Date of Project Submission: April 2015., Completed for: ORPIG; Supervising Professor: Dimitry Anastakis; Trent Community Research Centre, HIST4020 - Honours Thesis, Abstract: OPIRG Peterborough celebrates its 40th anniversary of social and environmental justice activism in the Peterborough community. As a continuation of Rihannon Johnson’s History of a Student-Led Organization I, this project chronicles the development of OPIRG Peterborough during the 1990’s. Using sociologist Alan Sears’ ‘infrastructure of dissent’ paradigm, each chapter explores a different social and environmental campaign that OPIRG Peterborough was involved with during the 1990’s. In doing so, the historical evolution of the organization is traced. At the theoretical level, however, the infrastructure of dissent (and its implications for social mobilization) is re-evaluated in every chapter, culminating in a conclusion that posits that the infrastructure of dissent may be more applicable to the study of social movements than Sears originally conceptualized. By contextualizing OPIRG Peterborough as part of a wider student movement in Chapter One, it is seen that the infrastructure of dissent has a professional ‘branch,’ one that is necessary for the survival of grassroots organizations. By analysing the historical development of the Peterborough Ecology Garden in Chapter Two, it is argued that the infrastructure of dissent has the capacity to homogenize the organizational identities of environmental justice organizations that may otherwise appear fractured. In Chapter Three, the capacity for the infrastructure of dissent to foster individual identities within OPIRG Peterborough working groups is discussed. By developing these particular facets of the infrastructure of dissent, it is argued that the infrastructure itself may be key to formulating effective social mobilizations outside of strictly labour-political dichotomies.
