  • Board of Governors
  • 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.

    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.
