Brown Bag Conversations: Discussing Decolonization Series

Wednesday, April 22, 2020 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
The registration period has closed for this event.

Topic: Three Years of Yakwanastahentéha / Aankenjigemi / Extending the Rafters

Zoom Meeting Link will be sent out the morning of the webinar

Join us for a conversation about what has happened with the Queen’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission Task Force final report recommendations since their release in March 2017. What changes are we seeing in, departments, units, faculties, and across campus more broadly? What work remains to be done?

As a result of participating in this series, individuals will:
• recognize and question their own knowledge and assumptions around decolonization
• apply colleagues’ ideas on decolonization to their own teaching practice
• actively participate in the decolonization of academia generally and Queen’s specifically

Faculty, staff, and students are welcome to monthly brown bag lunches to discuss the implications of decolonization for teaching and learning. Facilitators from the CTL will guide discussion, but all participants will contribute to the direction of each meeting and the direction of the program as a whole.


Registration open through Wednesday, April 22, 2020
