This year’s guest lecturer is Dr. Kristina Fagan Bidwell. She is a member of NunatuKavut, which represents the Southern Inuit community in Labrador. Dr. Bidwell grew up in Newfoundland, studied English at Memorial, and has been a scholar of Indigenous literatures based at the University of Saskatchewan for over twenty years, most recently as Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Storytelling. She is currently a visiting researcher at Memorial, and will discuss, among other things, how literary collaborations with Indigenous people – and, crucially, between Indigenous people – offer ways to challenge our historical erasure, restore our relations, and transform communities in Newfoundland and Labrador for the better.
