WPL Lecture Series Moves Online

Monday, June 8, 2020

During May, Renison partnered with the Waterloo Public Library to bring the remaining two lectures of our series with them, which was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These lectures were recorded, and are now available on Renison's YouTube channel!

Why for-profit water bottling is a problem and what we can do about it

Robert Case, speaker

Originally recorded on Thursday, May 21. 

Water is emerging as an increasingly potent focus of political contestation in communities all around the globe. Wellington County, Ontario, is no exception even though – unlike many places where water is a issue of contention – most people in Wellington County have reliable access to as much safe, clean, affordable water as they need. In this presentation I will share findings of my research on how water activism has evolved in Wellington County and what is driving it, and engage those in attendance in a discussion of next steps and opportunities for involvement in the local water justice movement.

Memorial Tattoos

Susan Cadell, speaker

Originally recorded on Thursday, May 28.

What do tattoos have to do with grief? Who gets tattoos that memorialize a person? What do those tattoos look like? For answers to these and other questions, join researcher Susan Cadell for a look into the experience and meaning of memorial tattoos.
