WATERLOO, ONT.—Conrad Grebel University College has issued a call for proposals for an academic conference that will offer stories and analyses of encounters and relationships between Indigenous peoples and Mennonite settlers from point of contact through to the present. “Indigenous-Mennonite Encounters in Time and Place” is scheduled for May 13-15, 2022. The intent is to advance understanding on the part of Mennonites and other participants in their colonial histories, and is an effort to advance reconciliation and bring justice to Indigenous-settler relations. The event will include scholarly presentations and feature storytelling, art, and both Indigenous and Mennonite ceremony. Whether you are an academic, activist, or artist, the organizers invite you to submit a proposal by Sept. 30, 2021. Visit uwaterloo.ca/grebel/events/proposals-ime-2022 for details.
