The Founder’s Seminar and Book Launch, hosted by the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies, will take place on January 22, 2016 in Room 252, 2:30 – 4:00 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.

The book Far Off Metal River: Inuit Lands, Settler Stories and the Making of the Contemporary Arctic  will be presented, followed by a panel discussion with:

  • Dr. Emilie Cameron (Assistant Professor, Department of Geography and Environmental Studies, Carleton University)
  • Dr. Frances Abele (Professor, School of Public Policy and Administration, Carleton University)
  • Dr. Danielle DiNovelli-Lang (Assistant Professor, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Carleton University)

Far Off Metal River is about how stories make worlds. It traces the imaginative, material, and political life of a particular story – the Bloody Falls massacre story, first told in the late 18th century – in order to better understand colonial and capitalist relations in the contemporary Arctic.
