Part of memorial Research Week 2022
On the heels of recent revelations of past and ongoing injustices, reconciliation and solidarity between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people is increasingly urgent. But it is a complex endeavor. In her new book, The Solidarity Encounter: Women, Activism, and Creating Non-Colonizing Relations, Carol Lynne D’Arcangelis grapples with this key tension: colonizing behaviours that result when white women centre their own goals and frameworks as they participate in activism with Indigenous women and groups. D’Arcangelis links interviews with activists and her own self-reflections to current scholarship to take readers into the fraught terrain of solidarity organizing.
Join author Carol Lynne D’Arcangelis for an author talk followed by a roundtable with special guests Joanne Harris (Ktaqmkuk Mi’kmaw), Beth Jacobs (Anishinaabe), and Andrea Procter (white settler) who will reflect on how the book relates to their Indigenous/Non-Indigenous solidarity experiences. The event will be hosted by Dr. Sonja Boon, Professor, Department of Gender Studies.
There will be light refreshments.
