Join us for lunch hour learning!
A twice-monthly screening of the Learning With Syeyutsus Speaker Series to take place at the Sooke Branch. Bring your lunch and watch the video and discussion.
This speaker series, now in its third season, is organized in partnership by the Nanaimo Ladysmith School District and UBC Press. It is sponsored by Vancouver Island Regional Library.
On Wednesday, May 24th, Adam Barker discusses his book Making and Breaking Settler Space: Five Centuries of Colonization in North America.
“How have settlers used violence and narrative to transform Turtle Island into what is currently called North America? What does that say about our social systems, and what happens next?
Adam Barker employs analytical tools from diverse disciplines, and draws on sources ranging from archives to pop culture and personal experience to answer these questions.
Adam’s talk will be thought-provoking and a great use not only to scholars and students of settler colonialism but also to activists and political commentators concerned with Indigenous people’s future beyond the settler colonial society.”
