Description

Walking in Two Worlds & Occupying the Third Space: Indigenous Graduate Student Experience

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Leroy Little Bear

In our 16th year, we draw upon the work of Torres Strait Islander Dr. Martin Nakata to explore the third space. Presenters consdier how Indigenous graduate students negotiate the challenges of bringing traditional teachings to scholarship and the academy. Join us to reflect upon the ways in which Indigenous scholars balance community expectations, responsibilities, and academic work, and occupy the third space in doing so.

Supporting Aboriginal Graduate Enhancement (SAGE) is a province-wide inter-institutional initiative developing a critical mass of Aboriginal graduate students to advance the education and well-being of Indigenous people and communities.
