Indigenous research & Indigenous Environmental Justice

Wednesday, November 3, 2021 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm EDT (GMT -04:00)

The Faculty of Environment invites you to attend a special Speakers Series on Decolonizing Methodologies for Respectful Sustainability Research

Sessions will take place during the last week of each month. The second session, featuring Professor Deborah McGregor from York University, is on November 3rd from 12:00 - 1:15 pm. 

Following the Speaker presentation, STEC will share information about post-talk interactive reflection sessions.

Speakers will share their unique approaches to decolonizing research, and how they conduct research that is inclusive, mindful of local cultural practices and sensitive to diverse research contexts. Among participants, we will collectively explore the meaning of decolonization as it pertains to sustainability research; to re-think our approach to and purpose of research; and to explore ways to design and conduct Respectful Research.

This speaker series is organized as part of a student-led initiative and sponsored by STEC.
