Memorial University is pursuing a number of goals in response to “A Special Obligation,” the report of a 2009 Presidential Task Force on Aboriginal Initiatives. The Office of the Special Advisor to the President on Aboriginal Affairs coordinates this work in collaboration with other University offices and personnel.
Memorial University of Newfoundland and the Nunatsiavut Government will co-host the 20th Biennial Inuit Studies Conference, Oct. 7-10, 2016, in St. John’s. The theme for the 2016 Inuit Studies Conference, “Inuit Traditions,” invites Elders, knowledge-bearers, researchers, artists, policy-makers, students and others to engage in conversations about the many ways in which traditions shape understanding while registering social and cultural change. Presentations on all aspects of Inuit studies will be welcome. The host committee particularly welcomes presentations, discussions, workshops, performances and other opportunities for dialogue on Inuit traditions. For more information on participation call types, visit the conference website at www.mun.ca/isc2016. Further conference details are in the works and will be released on the website in the coming months; for general inquiries, email email@example.com.
