Brown Bag Conversations: Discussing Decolonization Series

Thursday, February 28, 2019 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
The registration period has closed for this event.

Topic: The practicalities of hiring Indigenous colleagues

We invite participants to prepare for this session by reading Zoe Todd’s Urbane Adventurer: Amiskwacî blog posting “Indigenizing Canadian academia and the insidious problem of white possessiveness”). Participants are still welcome to the discussion if they don’t complete the reading.

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 Thursday, February 28, 2019
