I’m so looking forward to participate this morning in a roundtable I organized on “Indigenous Texts and Young People” for the Association of Research in the Cultures of Young People, which meets today at the 2017 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, held at Ryerson University, my home institution. The panel will consist of the following presentations:
- “Who Is a (Métis) Author: Race, Métisness, and Children’s Literature,” by Jennifer Adese (Carleton University)
- “The Weight of the Absence at the Centre of the Text: Responding to Missing Nimâmâ,” by Katherine Bell (Wilfrid Laurier University)
- “Shifting the Grounds: Witness, Knowledge, Complication,” by Louise Saldanha (Douglas College)
- “Show and Tell: Indigenous Crossover Texts,” by Benjamin Lefebvre (Ryerson University)
- “Nineteenth-Century Indigenous Child Printing Programs,” by Jane Griffith (University of Toronto)
For those of you at Congress, this session will be in Ryerson’s Student Learning Centre, room 508, starting at 10:30 this morning. It will then be followed by ARCYP’s Annual General Meeting and two additional roundtables. Please join us!
