Moderated by Dr. Maurice Jr. Labelle, this conversation is the keynote event for our upcoming workshop An International Workshop on Post-Orientalism/Atelier international sur le post-orientalisme. This workshop seeks to think critically about decolonization in the twenty-first century, using Edward Saïd’s Orientalism as a starting point. In this 60-minute conversation, Dr. Allyson Stevenson, a Métis Professor of International Studies at the University of Regina, and Lorenzo Veracini, a specialist on colonial systems and settler colonialism from the Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia, will discuss settler colonialism in a global context and how here in Canada we can think more critically about decolonialization, settler colonialism, and the 2015 Truth and Reconciliation Commission report. This event is held in Conjunction with the Socrates Project.
- Location: Indigenous Circle (between the Faculty Club and Whidden Hall). **In the event of rain, this talk will take place at the Indigenous Ceremonial Room, L.R. Wilson Hall, room 1010.**
