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, June 7, Carol Lynne D’arcangelis discusses her book The Solidarity Encounter: Women, Activism, and Creating Non-Colonizing Relations

“Political solidarity across difference is among the most crucial and challenging concerns of our time.

Join us in conversation with Carol Lynne D’Arcangelis as she shares aspects to a key problem: colonizing behaviours that result when white women’s self-interests take centre stage as they participate in activist work with Indigenous women and groups.

Carol Lynne will share a constructive framework for developing non-colonizing solidarity that can be applied in any context of unequal power. Her work provides an invaluable set of strategies for resisting the “solidarity impulse” and respecting boundaries between self and other.”
