The first SFU-UBC Indigenous Graduate Student Symposium is seeking graduate students whose research reflects the symposium theme: “Hands Back, Hands Forward – Indigenizing the Academy through Relationships.”
The theme aims to explore concepts, practices, innovations and challenges in making academia more respectful and responsive to indigenous knowledge systems, communities and learners.
The symposium, to be held March 7, is open to both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students.
The deadline for proposed submissions is Jan. 19, 2015 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
