“I, Too, Am McGill”

Following the lead of I, Too, Am Harvard   and  I, Too, Am Oxford  McGill students of colour have launched I, Too, Am McGill, to denounce the “conscious and unconscious micro-aggression that often silences our voices, devalues our contributions, and questions our presence at this elite institution of higher learning.”

March 18: Settler Common Sense lecture by Mark Rifkin

How do varied administrative projects of settler colonialism and accompanying legal categories, geographies and subjectivities come to serve as the background for ordinary non-native perception? Conceptions of property and personhood that emerge out of ongoing histories of settler-Indigenous confrontation, negotiation and struggle help shape non-natives’ lived sensations, including the routine experience of place. In this lecture, Mark Rifkin, author of “Settler Common Sense” and Associate Professor of English and Women’s and Gender Studies at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro addresses such feelings and explores the ways settlement is woven through everyday life.

The lecture will take place on March 18 at 5:30 p.m. at Arts W-125 (853 Sherbrooke St. W.). This event is presented by the Deptartment of English and co-sponsored by the Institute for Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies and is made possible by a grant from the Beatty Memorial Lectures Committee. The event is free and open to the public.
