Lecture/Seminar 50th Anniversary Deans' Lecture Series: The Murderous Imagination: Colonial Collisions and the Genres of Justice 2013-04-12 12:30:00
Description

Rebecca Johnson's, LLM, SJD, Faculty of Law, talk will focus on the high profile 1958 trial of Kikkik, an Inuit woman charged with murder. What can be learned about justice and Canadian histories of the north by exploring four different genres in which this story has been told? We will compare the trial transcript; Farley Mowatt’s book The Desperate People; a trio of Inuit sculptures (carved in 1959) on display in the Yellowknife courthouse; and a documentary film made 50 years after the event by one of Kikkik’s own daughters.

Visit the Deans' Lecture Series for further details and registration information.
