Invitation to the

You are cordially invited to attend the “Page, Stage, Screen, Voice: A Canadian Studies Seminar” where six prominent Canadian speakers discuss subjects concerning: theatrical nationhood as a mechanism for creating a sense of appropriative indigeneity in settler Canadians; education as colonization in Indigenous memoirs from residential schools; the Indigenous comic as a means of disruption of settler colonial discourses and restorying the past and unsettling the present; National Film Board of Canada’s short films that take up questions of auto/biographical representation in the digital era; the possibility of poetry being deployed as theatre that seeks to obliterate the linearity of narrative and efface viewpoints; and the juxtaposition of the recorded intimate oral history of the early 1960s TISH poetry community which emphasizes the role of women vs. the public history of the single-authored, print-based narratives.
