Co-curated by Jane Tingley, professor in the Department of Fine Arts, INTERACTION is an exhibition that explores how Canadian artists and designers are engaging the public through interactivity.

Bridges Lecture – Polar Projects: Conceptualizing and rendering arctic spaces

The first Bridges lecture in 2018 will explore how humans have sought to make the Arctic legible (to borrow the phrase of James C. Scott), from pre-contact Inuit understandings of space and time, through the practices and instruments of European maritime explorers, through the introduction of aviation and the refinement of Arctic air navigation, to the age of satellites.

Susan Hill: Indigenous Speakers Series

The Indigenous Speakers Series proudly presents professor of history Susan M. Hill, author of The Clay We Are Made Of. If we want to understand Haudenosaunee (Six Nations) history, we need to consider the history of Haudenosaunee land. For countless generations prior to European contact, land and territory informed Haudenosaunee thought and philosophy, and was a primary determinant of Haudenosaunee identity.

Join the Department of Anthropology for the 2018 Silver Medal Award Lecture featuring visiting Professor Bonnie McElhinny, University of Toronto. Political scientists note that we live in an “age of apologies” for historical wrongs (typically, war-crimes and racialized harms). Canadian governments have made about 11 major apologies, quasi-apologies or statements of reconciliation since the mid-1980s, mostly for actions against Indigenous or racialized groups, but also recently for homophobic exclusions. This talk considers what these apologies are and do; what form of redress apologies are and are not; and why they have arisen alongside policies of trade liberalization, economic deregulation and state transformation.
