Saturday, March 11, 2016  9:00 am – 5:00 pm,

Friday Evening Speaker – Khelsilem (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Language Teacher, Kwi Awt Stelmexw)

Saturday Key Note Speaker – Chief Robert Joseph (Reconciliation Canada Ambassador)

 

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.

Bula Vinaka Everyone,

We are just planning our SAGE events for January onwards and wanted to let you know what we have planned and get some feedback around timing and dates
Indigenous Graduate Student Symposium Planning Committee
We are looking for Indigenous graduate students to be on the planning committee for this years Indigenous Graduate Student Symposium. Please get in touch if you are interested in joining us and I will send you the details for the next meeting.
Weekend Writing Retreat
We will be hosting a weekend writing retreat in early February, please keep an eye out for the invite!
 
12 Week Writing Intensive
We would like to host a 12 week writing intensive. This is a chance of you to commit to meeting every fortnight for 12 weeks to make a plan for a writing goal and then share your progress with the group. The meetings will be every fortnight from 12:30-3:30, we just need a day of the week. So if this sounds like something you would be interested in please get in touch with a day(s) that works for you and we will go with the majority day.
 
Coffee and Catch Up
We would like to run coffee and catch up again from January. Coffee and Catch Up is a social gathering once a week in the morning, if this is something you would like to come to please let me know which day of the week works best for you (usually we run them from 9:30 onwards) and we will send out an invite once we have a day of the week.
Anything else….
If there is something else you would like SAGE to run please get in touch. We are hoping to get visiting Indigenous academics to also spend some time with graduate students, and we will keep you updated as those opportunities arise. But if there are other workshops or gatherings that you think would be helpful please let us know.
Thank you,

2016 CALL FOR PROPOSALS

**Extended** DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: January 4, 2015

The University and Community have shaped each other for some time now. This year the Indigenous Graduate Student Symposium (IGSS) invites submissions that explore transformation through Indigenous Research and Knowledge by thinking about how research interacts with community and how community shapes research. Please use this wordle to find inspiration for your abstract.

Indigenous graduate students or graduate students whose research relates to Indigenous scholarship in any discipline or across disciplines are invited to submit an individual or group proposal limited to 150 words to grad.sage@ubc.ca by January 4, 2016. Please include with your proposal: the type of presentation, title, presenter(s) name(s), graduate program/university, and email. Please note that preference will be given to proposals that address the conference theme. However, proposals on Indigenous topics that do not address the theme will still be considered. We look forward to sharing multidisciplinary presentations and networking with student colleagues from near and far, in a comfortable, supportive community of scholars.

Your work-­‐in-­‐progress or finished projects may be shared in two ways:

  • Poster session. This format is open to your creativity. It provides an opportunity for you toshare your work with symposium participants during lunch.
  • Oral research presentation. This format supports a more formal opportunity to share your research or academic project in a 20-­‐minute presentation to a small audience. 

    We look forward to hearing from you! Please let us know if you have any questions: grad.sage@ubc.ca Hosted by the IGSS Planning Committee & SAGE (Supporting Aboriginal Graduate Enhancement) The University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University and SAGE Partnership IGSS 2016 Call for Proposals-deadline extended.jpg
