This two-day conference will bring together Indigenous scholars and non-Indigenous scholars from across Canada, the USA, the UK, Uganda, Finland, and Australia to engage in presentations and discussions of cutting-edge research related to the themes of Indigenous resurgence and resistance; decolonization; reconciliation; and transformation of settler colonialism, as well as other closely related topics. The conference is funded by the McGill Indigenous Studies and Community Engagement Initiative, the Yan P. Lin Centre for the Study of Freedom and Global Orders in the Ancient and Modern Worlds (Research Group on Global Justice and Research Group on Constitutional Studies), and the Centre de Recherche en Éthique.
The conference will also involve scholars in the McGill and Montréal communities, including post-doctoral fellows, graduate students, and undergraduate students, as well as the broader public. We are committed to advertising this event to relevant interested parties and community partners, and to involve local experts in some roles during the conference.
The keynote lecture will take place 4:00-5:30 pm, May 26, 2022, in Leacock 232, by Mahmood Mamdani, ‘Reflections on Settler Colonialism in North America and Africa.’
