Eli Clare: A Dialogue on "Cure"

Join us in a conversation with Eli Clare, a renowned writer, speaker, scholar, and poet.  Eli’s recent work challenges us to reconceive the idea of “cure”.

This interactive talk will ask us to carefully consider how we position ourselves, our research, and our social justice commitments in relation to the monolithic notion of “cure."

Reception to follow.

Our democracy is based on our leaders proving what they say with evidence, which is why the government employs scientists. The current federal government has muzzled scientists, ended the long form census, and, as a result, changed how you understand Canada. Now, our democracy is under threat and our panel of activists and experts want to discuss with you what we can do about this attack on our very way of life.
