Mikinaakominis / TransCanadas Literature, Institutions, Redress, Relation
May 24, 2017 - May 27, 2017
Mikinaakominis (Turtle Island) / TransCanadas brings together storytellers, poets, novelists, creative non-fiction writers, critics, and interdisciplinary practioners to expand the ongoing dialogue about the relationship of Canadian literatures to land, Indigenous resurgences, and Black, Muslim, Asian and other racialized subjectivities in the context of global human, nonhuman, economic, social, and ecological shifts. At both individual and collective levels, with a particular focus on developing decolonizing practices in the public sphere and in the humanities, Mikinaakominis / TransCanadas asks the hard questions that need to be asked now and attempts some provisional answers in the form of story, critique, poem, and experiment.
