Lecture/Seminar IDEAFEST: On being here to stay, together 2017-03-07 17:30:00


IdeaFest and the Centre for Global Studies present:

"On being here to stay, together"


WHEN: March 7th, 2017

TIME: 5:30-7:30pm

WHERE: Bob Wright Centre (BWC), Room B150, University of Victoria

DETAILS: Reconciling a regrettable colonial past with a respectful future is a challenge and an opportunity for governments and peoples around the world. As we celebrate Canada’s 150th, how do we reconcile the past and participate in an inclusive and diverse future? Join us for a conversation on the impact of universal aspirations for the rights of Indigenous peoples and of national calls for reconciliation. What can we do as individuals and within our communities to support these goals?

Chaired by Martin Bunton, Acting Director, Centre for Global Studies


Michael Asch (Department of Anthropology),

Neilesh Bose (Department of History),

Erynne Gilpin (Centre for Global Studies and PhD candidate, Indigenous Governance),

Anita Girvan (Centre for Global Studies/School of Environmental Studies)
