Whose history? The politics of renaming and de-statueingWhen: March 7, 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Where: UVic, David Turpin Building (DTB) A120
Names are in the news. Calls to rename buildings, streets and natural landmarks—and to remove statues and memorials bearing certain names—are increasing. What’s in a name and why do names matter? It’s a debate happening here on campus, in Victoria and around the world. Representing a variety of viewpoints, panellists will offer historical and contemporary perspectives on the politics of renaming and “de-statueing,” travelling from Ukraine’s post-Soviet memorial landscape via the contested terrain of American Confederate commemoration, to Indigenous traditional territories in Canada. This lively event promises to be a provocative discussion about destabilizing memory and rewriting history.
The role of the sacred in Indigenous law and reconciliationWhen: March 8, 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Where: Alix Goolden Hall (907 Pandora Avenue)
It is often said that Indigenous peoples’ relationship to the land—and Indigenous peoples’ law—is sacred. What does “sacred” mean in this context? What should it convey to non-Indigenous Canadians when they engage with Indigenous peoples? How can you understand another person’s sense of the sacred?
Two of UVic’s leading Indigenous scholars, John Borrows and Val Napoleon, will discuss the sacred in Indigenous law and reconciliation. They are key figures in UVic’s proposed dual-degree program in Canadian law and Indigenous law. In this conversation, they will explore the nature of Indigenous law and pose important—and challenging—questions about the role of the sacred.
