Through this integration and juxtaposition of recognizable Anishinaabeg materials used in Anishinaabeg material culture (e.g. glass beads, porcupine quills), with contemporary electronic materials (e.g. capacitors and resistors), the exhibition will challenge viewers to reject and re-examine notions of cultural status.

    We're extremely excited to announce that the Sustainability Office will be hosting Laurier's first ever Zero Waste Week!

    The Zero Waste Movement is getting stronger and we're eager to be a part of it. Taking the step to go waste-free has countless environmental, economic and social benefits. It not only conserves our resources, but it also reduces our climate impact, promotes social equality and builds community.

    Tons of fun activities are planned for Laurier's Zero Waste Week starting March 4 with a new theme each day. We'll be kicking off Monday with a focus on awareness, followed by food, fashion and education over the course of the week. Stay tuned for film screenings, cooking classes, workshop series and much more. And don't worry – we have prizes too. By participating, you'll be entered for the chance to win daily prizes and of course... an exclusive grand prize!

  • 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM Barry Ace: Coalesce, Mixed Media Installation (Opening)

    Join us to celebrate the final exhibition of the season.

    Coalesce presents a fusion of distinct Anishinaabeg aesthetics of the Great Lakes’ region with the refuse from Western society’s technological and digital age. This entanglement of materials intentionally shifts the object’s materiality and its accepted paradigm within the physical world. Through this integration and juxtaposition of recognizable Anishinaabeg materials used in Anishinaabeg material culture (e.g. glass beads, porcupine quills), with contemporary electronic materials (e.g. capacitors and resistors), the exhibition will challenge viewers to reject and re-examine notions of cultural status.

    10:00 AM - 12:00 PM Navigating Contentious Topics in the Classroom

    Teaching about contentious topics in an age of polarized opinions can be daunting … or it can be a pathway to deepening learning. By the end of this session, you will be able to: 1) Identify problematic aspects of invisible assumptions in education and their concomitant exclusions and silencing impact within classroom discussions; and 2) Contemplate what can be done before, during, and after class to encourage student engagement and to foster the inclusion of multiple perspectives.

    Register for the session.

  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Celebrating Indigenous Education Week: The role of allies in Canada's reconciliation

    Canada’s reconciliation process has been one of fear, excitement, mis-steps, stumbles and victories. Throughout this process we as a country have been feeling our way through an unknown process that changes daily. Indigenous people are fairly sure of their role in this process, but what about non-Indigenous Canadians? Erin Hodson has some thoughts.

    Erin Hodson is Wilfrid Laurier’s Indigenous Curriculum Specialist. Erin is of Kanien'kehá:ka descent, Turtle Clan. She received her MEd with a focus on the Social and Cultural Context of Education from Brock University in 2017. For almost 10 years, Erin worked for the Tecumseh Centre for Aboriginal Research and Education where she created and taught courses focusing on Canadian history through the understanding of the Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island. Erin has been involved in several research projects investigating the state of Indigenous education in Canada. During her research, Erin has witnessed firsthand the benefits of engaging with Indigenous culture for both her own people’s sense of self within mainstream education and for benefit of non-Indigenous people. Erin has been an outspoken advocate for including Indigenous content throughout all levels of education.

    Speaker: Dr. Josephine McMurray, Business Technology Management Program, Lazaridis School of Business and Economics

    Abstract: 

    In 2016, the number of older adults in Canada surpassed the number of children, due to lower fertility rates, increasing life expectancy and the baby boomers aging. The Silver Economy is a term that has been used to refer to economic activity associated with meeting the needs of seniors. In this lecture I will explore how technology might be used to help organizations and communities manage the impact of a growing number of older adults, but better still how they can thrive by encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship in the health and age-related technology sector.

    This event is part of the Laurier Milton Lecture Series, a partnership between the Town of Milton, Laurier and the Milton Public Library. Admission is free, and no registration is required.

    Title

    Putting Machine Learning to Work for Digital Forensics

    Abstract

    Digital devices and connectivity are creating a data tsunami for investigators in the law enforcement and corporate communities. Not only has the popularity of chat and email applications resulted in a massive spike of text-based conversations; but an increasing number of devices (smartphones, digital cameras, other IoT devices, etc.) also facilitate the easy capture of photos and videos. As a result, the number of pictures and messages that may appear in a case has grown exponentially, making it difficult for forensic examiners, investigators and analysts to keep up. The manual analysis of the evidence for context and relevance, combined with report building, can add significant time to an investigation. Magnet.AI allows an examiner or investigator to better prioritize their time in an investigation, and find potentially relevant evidence faster than they could through manual review. In this talk we’ll introduce Magnet Forensics, a Waterloo-based software company, and how we’re helping to tackle this problem. As well, we’ll discuss how we’ve applied machine learning techniques to assist in the analysis.

  • 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM In the Thick of It: Challenging Fatphobia for Everyone’s Wellbeing

    We live in a world where many of us are told that we're either "too much" or "not enough" and we come to understand ourselves and others through that lens. This introductory workshop provides an opportunity to unpack some of the ways in which sizeism/fatphobia interact with other systems of oppression to teach us that some bodies are “too much” and to explore opportunities to challenge weight-bias in order to create spaces where ALL bodies are welcome.

    Through hands on activities and group discussions, we’ll work together to critically consider where weight-bias comes from, what it looks and sounds like- especially in “wellness” spaces and conversations- and to explore strategies for managing fatphobia/sizeism in our relationships with ourselves and each other. Because everybody is valuable and every body deserves to feel good and be treated with respect!

  • 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM Decolonizing Religion and Spirituality: Centering Diversity and the Sacred in the 21st Century

    In this workshop, we will explore what it means to decolonize religion and spirituality. Guided by the role of “Spirit” as articulated in the TRC Call To Actions, this workshop will include a primer on understanding diverse definitions and experiences of religion and spirituality.

    A major focus of this workshop will be to form practical approaches to discussing what these concepts mean to us in our own lived experiences of decolonization and the challenges we might face in this process. Using contemporary examples, this workshop will also provide an understanding of the role religion and spirituality have played in forming spiritual-political coalitions in social movements.

    Please note that you do not need to identify as a religious or spiritual to attend this workshop, and you do not need to disclose any personal information at any point during this workshop. This workshop is open to all.

  • 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Bleed Red Go Green: Exploring Sustainable Menstration

    Come out to learn about menstruating sustainably. We'll cover the intersections of menstruation and environmental justice, including how disposable pads and tampons impact the environment and your body and alternative products you can use. Featuring guest speakers from DivaCup and LSPIRG, this interactive workshop will provide you with the information and materials (i.e. a free product!) you need to start menstruating sustainably! And there will be free dinner provided!

    This workshop is open to all Laurier students regardless of gender. We will be talking about misconceptions around menstruation, including the notion that only women (and all women) menstruate. We welcome all folks who menstruate to this workshop, as well as anyone who just wants to learn more about menstruation and its relationship to environmental harm.

    In order to receive your free sustainable menstrual product, you must register and choose the type of menstrual product you would like to receive. You will learn more about each of these products during the workshop, but you can find additional information using the links below.

    Please register by March 11 to ensure your product is available on the day of the event. Those who register afterward may need to pick up their free product at a later date.

    This space is wheelchair accessible and has a gender-neutral accessible washroom.

    Rivers and Restitution: The Politics of Post-conflict Baselining and the Reconstruction of Ecological Memory

    Issues of war crimes, violence, and dispossession have primarily focused on humans as victims and actors within legal frameworks concerned with the defense and violation of human rights and international humanitarian law. In Colombia public debates have recently emerged over the ways in which soils, rivers, forests, seeds, living beings and other “natural resources” are also casualties and scenes of war and require reparative treatment in the country’s post-peace accord and transitional justice process. This paper employs the strategies of poetic ethnography to address a series of speculative questions: What kinds of environmental standards emerge in efforts to integrate a river’s right to expand, pulsate, and return to its previous course? In what ways might the reconstruction of ecological memory in zones of war/disaster shift practices of restitution and justice? How do citizen-led environmental observatories become alternative democratic forums for local peace-building efforts and the creation of emerging “environmental publics” in times of conflict and transition?

    Hosted by the Anthropology Program, the Anthropology Students’ Association, the Department of Global Studies and the Department of English and Film Studies.

    10:00 AM - 10:00 PM Barry Ace: Coalesce, Mixed Media Installation (Opening)

    Join us to celebrate the final exhibition of the season.

    Coalesce presents a fusion of distinct Anishinaabeg aesthetics of the Great Lakes’ region with the refuse from Western society’s technological and digital age. This entanglement of materials intentionally shifts the object’s materiality and its accepted paradigm within the physical world. Through this integration and juxtaposition of recognizable Anishinaabeg materials used in Anishinaabeg material culture (e.g. glass beads, porcupine quills), with contemporary electronic materials (e.g. capacitors and resistors), the exhibition will challenge viewers to reject and re-examine notions of cultural status.

    12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Delton Glebe Lunch and Learn Series
    Horticultural Therapy: Heidi Torreiter An interactive introduction to horticultural therapy. Participants will be reminded through their senses, of the power that plants hold to effect how we feel, be inspired by the supporting research and leave with easy ways of incorporating plant therapy into their practice.
