Tuesday, September 17, 2019 — 3:00 PM EDT

The Waterloo Centre for German Studies presents Birgit Schreyer Duarte, a dramaturg in Toronto while also transitioning into directing over the past ten years. Her current production, a contemporary interpretation of Lessing’s Nathan the Wise, is part of the 2019 Stratford Festival season. Dr. Schreyer Duarte will discuss how she and her team approached the “staging of the other” in this 18th-century play from Germany, performed in today’s Canada, that reflects on the common humanity that unites us all. 

Wednesday, September 18, 2019 — 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM EDT

The Indigenous Speakers Series proudly presents Jesse Thistle, a Métis-Cree-Scot from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, whose bestselling memoir, From the Ashes (Simon and Schuster Canada), chronicles his life on the streets and how he overcame trauma and addiction to discover the truth about who he is. His scholarship is focused on intergenerational and historic trauma of the Métis people, and also reflects on his own past struggles with homelessness. Jesse is widely recognized in the scholarly community and beyond.
