I-CYS Symposium - At The Intersections of Childhood 2017

I-CYS Symposium - At The Intersections of Childhood 2017

The Institute for Child & Youth Studies (I-CYS) is hosting its inaugural At the Intersections of Childhood 2017 Symposium on the intersections of Digital, Indigenous, and Youth Issues on Saturday, April 1, 2017 in Markin Hall. This full-day symposium brings together voices from across campus and beyond for a day of discussion regarding the intersection of these three issues.  

The event will consist of a keynote lecture by Kirsten Lindquist (U of A, Native Studies), followed by a lunch, and three panel discussions by University of Lethbridge scholars and invited guests (Dr. Peter Dawson, U of C, Dr. Chelsey Hauge, Brock University, and Daniela Navia, MA). During the panels, the audience will have the opportunity to respond to the papers and reflect on the intersections of these issues. Moreover, attendees will learn from other scholars, hear from community members, activists and practitioners, and ultimately to transform the way research is conceptualized in these areas.  

Following the panel discussions, this symposium will conclude with a student poster session against the backdrop of a collegial wine and cheese gathering.

Register for the full day (includes lunch and interactive discussion panels):   

$40 Faculty, $15 U of L Students, free admission for community members (including lunch) - RSVP Required: RSVP Here.

Attendance of the keynote is FREE to everyone!
