Worldviews annual lecture: Truth and Reconciliation in higher education and the media – March 19, 2019

March 1st, 2019

An event that may be of interest to faculty

Truth and Reconciliation in higher education and the media: What are the responsibilities? What is needed to overcome the legacy of colonialism?

 

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 (award winning journalist and author) 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.

 

The Worldviews Lecture is organized by the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations, the Centre for the Study of Canadian and International Higher Education at the University of Toronto, and the Ryerson School of Journalism. It is made possible with the generous support of the Academica Group, Inside Higher Ed, and University World News.

 

Date and time: Tuesday, March 19, 2019, 7pm to 9pm.
Location: The Catalyst at FCAD, Ryerson University, 80 Gould Street – RCC 230, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M5B 2K3
Registration: This is a free public event but advance registration is required to participate in person or to participate on-line.
