Who Is ‘Free’ to Speak of “Genocide”? MMIWG, Political Discourse, and the Solidarity Humanities

Professor Len Findlay

University of Saskatchewan

Tues. Sept. 24 @ 4pm

1811 Dunton Tower

This talk defends the use of the term “genocide” in the 2019 report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. Against claims that the term is a distraction, a case of unfortunate over-reach, or a distortion, Dr. Findlay situates this use of the term in the shift from the Eurocentric to what he calls the Solidarity Humanities. In this shift, disciplines deeply implicated in colonialism on Turtle Island work to decolonize themselves through a radical (and radicalizing) post-colonial understanding and practice of Indigenous-humanistic teaching, scholarship, and political struggle.

Len Findlay is Distinguished University Professor Emeritus, former Director of the Humanities Research Unit and founding member of the Indigenous Humanities Group at the University of Saskatchewan.

Co-sponsored by the School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies, the Department of History, and the Department of English Language and Literature.

University: Uncensored – The Ottawa Summit For Academic Freedom

The Scholars at Risk (SAR) initiative and the Department of Law and Legal Studies at Carleton University are proud to be hosting Canada’s very first SAR student advocacy summit. ‘University Uncensored’ will be taking place at MacOdrum library on September 27th and 28th.

With academic freedom as its focal point, the summit will offer participants a unique space within which they are able to engage activists, leading human rights experts, world-class scholars, and senior civil servants. During the course of the summit, registrants will gain first-hand insights into the inner workings of advocacy platforms and human rights and its institutions.

In brief, the summit will commence on Friday, September 27th with an interactive lecture on academic freedom and human rights delivered by Amnesty Canada’s Secretary General, Mr. Alex Neve. The lecture will be followed by specific case discussions, run by alumni of Academia and Activism – a fourth year legal seminar. This will be followed by a panel discussion and dinner with advocacy practitioners working in a range of fields from religious freedom, protection of LGBT people and gender equality. On day two, students will be enrolled in practice-oriented workshops led by SAR Scholars, the (Department of Law and Legal Studies) Activist-in-Residence and other SAR experts. The day will conclude with an engaged, participatory, exercise.

Who Can Register and How

In terms of registration, the summit is open to students enrolled in Academia and Activism as well as 25 additional students from Carleton University and the University of Ottawa. Please note that although preference will be given to 4th year students involved in advocacy leadership, registration is not limited to any particular faculty or program. Therefore, students from all disciplines and backgrounds are encouraged to register.

1. What fuels their interest in academic freedom and human rights;

2. What they wish to gain from the experience;

3. What they bring to the conference.
