Lecture/Seminar People in Place: The Worldview We Need 2017-05-03 19:30:00

John Ralston Saul: Renowned essayist visits Victoria for public talk on ethnoecology and resurgence

Indigenous knowledge, resurgence and the importance of place are themes that will be touched upon by award-winning essayist and novelist John Ralston Saul on May 3 at the University of Victoria in his talk, “People in Place: The Worldview We Need.”

Ralston Saul’s works have been translated into 28 languages in 37 countries. The latest, The Comeback (Le Grand Retour), is an examination of the resurgence to power of Indigenous peoples in Canada.

This keynote address is part of the four-day Indigenous Peoples' Land Rights and the Roles of Ethnoecology and Ethnobotany Symposium at UVic (now full to capacity), sponsored by the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation and hosted by UVic’s School of Environmental Studies. The symposium is one of four UVic signature series events to mark Canada’s 150th anniversary.

UVic ethnobotanist and ethnoecologist Nancy Turner, who has devoted her career to understanding and communicating the crucial role that plants play in Indigenous cultures and languages, is leading the symposium as part of her 2016 Pierre Elliott Trudeau Fellowship. She played a key role in bringing Ralston Saul to Victoria. (Read more on Turner’s legacy)
