Racialization and settler complicity: The complicated interface of migration, colonization, and Indigeneity in Canada

September 23, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This fall, we are excited to partner with the David Lam Chair and the Canada Research Chair in Indigenous People’s Well-being to hold a series of three connected workshops focused on articulating the tensions, paradoxes, and multiple and moving layers of complexity that exist at the interface of Indigeneity and migration in what is known as Canada, where settlers can be both subject to and complicit in the violence of different forms of colonialism through day-to-day actions.

The workshop series invites and equips participants (racialized and non-racialized) to expand their capacity for difficult conversations about settler-Indigenous-land relationships, where racialization confers different tensions, roles and accountabilities.

The workshops are held using the “depth inquiry” method, a mode of conversation that creates an educational space where people can learn and unlearn through experiences of psychological dissonance, or “difficult knowledge”.

Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies, UBC Vancouver campus.
