Indigenous thought and agency have long been excluded from the discipline of International Relations (IR). Even with the turn toward “decolonization” few IR scholars are engaging with Indigenous or settler colonial frameworks. Join Hayden King, Anishinaabe from Beausoleil First Nation on Gchi’mnissing, at the Balsillie School for his talk on counter-conceptualizations of the state, sovereignty and anarchy in pursuit of new/old visions of Indigenous futurity.

gallery with installation

Visit the multidisciplinary video installation by artist Lisa Lipton on display at the University of Waterloo Art Gallery (UWAG) until October 27. The fragmented narrative follows the artist's surrogate Frankie as they journey from the fictional town of Greysville crisscrossing North America before making it all the way to paradise: Hawaii. Augmented by props, furniture, and costumes from the nine chapters of the video, the installation evokes the desire to run away, reinvent oneself, and find true love.
