Next Tuesday, March 19, Tanya Talaga will be delivering the 2019 Worldviews Lecture on Media and Higher Education. The lecture is sold out, but we are streaming it online for free.
Truth and reconciliation in higher education and the media:
What are the responsibilities? What is needed to overcome the legacy of colonialism?
When: Tuesday, March 19, 2019, 7pm to 9pm.
In 2015, the final report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission was released, resulting in many universities and media outlets attempting to address the report’s calls to action. There are concerns that the initiatives undertaken have been ad hoc and do not address the ongoing legacy of colonialism.
Join us for an engaging talk by Tanya Talaga about the legacy of cultural genocide in Canada and her hope for a more inclusive and equitable future.
Her talk will be followed by a panel of media professionals and academics (including David Newhouse, Chair of the Chanie Wenjack School for Indigenous Studies at Trent University; Jesse Wente, Director of the Indigenous Screen Office; Hayden King, Yellowhead Institute and Ryerson University; and Susan Hill, Centre for Indigenous Studies, University of Toronto).
The discussion will further explore issues of reconciliation in the media and higher education.
