Residential Schools After the TRC: Calls To Action and Reconciliation in the Shadow of Residential Schools

Meet the Facilitator: Katherine Morton Richards

Katherine Morton Richards (she/her) is a settler colonial researcher, PhD candidate and instructor at Memorial University of Newfoundland. She is interested in the meaning-making processes found in political and social responses of settler colonial institutions to colonial violence. Her PhD research identifies points of intersection between violence, Indigenous identity and colonialism in relation to the material spaces of residential schools. She examines residential schools as carceral spaces that contradict Canada's national sense of self. She completed research in her MA on the construction of tropes of Indigenous identity and their presence in Indigenous-focused public inquiries. Her independent research focuses on femicide in Canada, particularly the case of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls (MMIWG).
