European Summer School in Canadian Studies
July 25 – August 5, 2022
Universities of Vienna and of Innsbruck
The Canadian Studies Centres of the Universities of Innsbruck and Vienna are organising the FIRSTEuropean Summer School in Canadian Studies, which will take place in Vienna (first week) and in Innsbruck (second week) from July 25 until August 5, 2022. The closing of borders during the pandemic has brought local inequalities and solidarities into sharp relief, while also heightening awareness of vulnerabilities and responsibilities that are shared transnationally. An interdisciplinary in-depth reflection on Canada, an important partner of the European Union, at a time when collaboration in person becomes possible again is therefore particularly welcome and urgent.
For further information concerning the program, accommodation, possible scholarships and the teaching concept cf. https://www.uibk.ac.at/weiterbildung/schools/esscs/index.html.en and https://canada.univie.ac.at/esscs/.

Truth, reconciliation, and respect have become vital twenty-first century watchwords in the re/centering of Indigenous Peoples’ narratives and lifeways, both in Canada and in the United States. Much of the recognition of colonial pasts and the promises of decolonial futures take root in the material realm — issues of land, resources, legal and administrative apparatuses, sovereignty policy, and body politics. But, what of the symbols and cultural representations that both precede and underwrite material colonization and its unraveling? Dr. Jason Black examines the importance of such symbols and representations to/for Indigenous Peoples by way of the mascot controversy in North America. With special attention paid to the Edmonton CFL team and McGill University cases, along with recent American mascot cases, this talk contemplates the colonial roots and decolonial possibilities tied to ending Indigenous mascotting as a cultural practice.
The September Brock Talk is being given by Dr. Jason Black, Fulbright Research Chair in Transnational Studies at Brock University, and has been co-organized by the Humanities Research Institute and The Centre for Canadian Studies.
