Unsettling Canada 150: Celebrating Histories of Resistance to Colonial Institutions
A celebration of 150 years of colonization, Canada 150 has brought to the mainstream conversations about resistance that Indigenous and other communities have been having for years. DIsOrientation 2017 will focus on resistance to underscore that resistance has always been present. We will bring these conversations to the university, thinking about how students and student groups have not only resisted but also shaped the university in ways that continue to be erased. Workshops will attempt to move us beyond land acknowledgements and promote ideas on how to decolonize the university, the classroom and all other student spaces.
