Take Two Speaker Series: Working In the Space Between Borders

This event is from the archives of The Notice Board. The event has already taken place and the information contained in this post may no longer be relevant or accurate.

We both start from a place of working to disrupt the borders that are exclusionary to the often-marginalized, displaced, and dispossessed groups we work with. This means recognizing how borders delineate and polarize and importantly understanding how boundaries can become permeable and accessible to people such that they can refuse, resist, and reframe them.

Dr. Michelle Hogue is an Associate Professor and Coordinator of the Indigenous Student Success Cohort. Currently, her research explores best practices in Canada, Australia and New Zealand to develop an inclusive, culturally responsive teaching practice and curricula through the philosophy of Bridging Cultures: Two-Eyed Seeing for Both Ways Knowing to enable Indigenous academic success.

Dr. Julie Young is Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Critical Border Studies and Assistant Professor in Geography. Her research program aims to better understand North America’s borders in the context of broader global processes as well as what local practices tell us about where, how, and for whom borders work.
