Environment Seminar Series: Land and Meaning Making
For Europeans, the conception of landscape as experience and meaning-making arose from the Romantic period. For First Peoples, this relationship has always been self-evident. Orenda Boucher-Curotte examines journey, land and meaning from the perspective of the Kanien’keha:ka peoples. Matthew Anderson examines pilgrimage, land and meaning from the Settler perspective. The presentation develops from a discussion between them about the ways in which land, mobility and meaning form the basis for both conflicting understandings and strategies of rapprochement.
This event takes place on Thursday, October 13 and is sponsored by the Environmental Studies & Environmental Science Profiles, the First Peoples’ Centre, and the Peace Centre. Students in Peace Studies can earn credits towards their certificate through participating in this event.
