Faculty of Education— Dean’s Distinguished Lecture: Reconciling History

 

The UBC Faculty of Education presents:

Dean’s Distinguished Lecture: Reconciling History

Overview

Colonialism entrenched inequality as a lived reality for many Indigenous peoples around the world. This presentation talks about what colonialism is, how it birthed multi-generational inequality and what can be done, including academically, to achieve justice in change resistant environments.

The Faculty of Education is pleased to partner with the Janusz Korczak Association (JKA) of Canada in presenting the Dean’s Distinguished Lecture. The distinguished lecture series highlights the ongoing work of those who seek to advance children’s rights in Canada and is presented in partnership with the JKA as a way of continuing the legacy of Janusz Korczak, a Polish-Jewish doctor and educator, who in 1942 perished in Treblinka along with nearly 200 orphans in his care.

Following the Distinguished Lecture, Directors of the JKA will present the Janusz Korczak Scholarship in Children’s Rights and Indigenous Education, Janusz Korczak Association of Canada Statuette, and the Janusz Korczak Association of Canada Medal.
