In the era of the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action – including calls for universities to act – we ask symposium attendees and presenters to consider the following theme: ‘Revitalizing, Remembering, and Retelling for Reconcili-Action’. This year the Indigenous Graduate Student Symposium (IGSS) invites submissions that explore transformation through ‘Reconcili-Action’ by thinking about how research interacts with the TRC Calls to Action and how this process shapes research and experiences in the academy.
