Description

Indigenous Education Network 30th Anniversary Lecture Series

Proclaiming the Roots and Realities of Indigenous-Black Peoples on Turtle Island

A talk by Ciann Wilson

Moderated by Kayla Webber

Ciann Wilson, Assistant Professor, Community Psychology, Wilfrid Laurier University. Ciann is of Afro-, Indo- and Euro- Jamaican ancestry. She has over a decade of experience working within African, Caribbean and Black communities across the greater Toronto area first as a youth programmer and now as a health researcher. Her research interests build off her community-engaged work to include critical race theory, anti-/de-colonial theory, African diasporic and Indigenous community health, HIV/AIDS, sexual and reproductive wellbeing and community-based research. Her body of work aims to utilize research as an avenue for sharing the stories and realities of African diasporic, Indigenous and racialized peoples and improving the health and wellbeing of these communities. Ciann has been instrumental in establishing a community-based research hub in Waterloo Region, which will feature a media lab equipped with media technology to conduct, analyze and share arts and digital media-based research. Ciann’s work is funded by Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), Canadian Innovation Fund, and the Ontario Research Fund, to name a few funding sources.
