The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Memorial University is holding a two-day symposium on the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric development in Labrador. The symposium will bring together scholarship, ideas and art to address the history and development of the project, and the criticism of its controversial aspects including the threat of methylmercury poisoning, downstream flooding, public finance and debt, and its impact on indigenous sovereignty, journalism, public oversight and democracy.
