As our conference date is approaching, we are receiving more speaker confirmations!

At this point, we would like to announce Keavy Martin as another guest speaker.

Martin is a settler scholar of Indigenous literatures at the University of Alberta, in Treaty 6 and Métis territory. She is the mother of a two-year-old son, the author of Stories in a New Skin: Approaches to Inuit Literature, the co-editor (with Julie Rak and Norma Dunning) of Mini Aodla Freeman’s memoir Life Among the Qallunaat and also (with Dylan Robinson) of Arts of Engagement: Taking Aesthetic Action In and Beyond the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. In 2015, she became a Member of the Royal Society of Canada's College of New Scholars, Artists, and Scientists.

Martin is tentatively scheduled to participate in a Roundtable discussion on Friday morning (June 9).
