Fri, December 1

There will be a session of the Victoria Colloquium on Political, Social and Legal Theory at 2:30 pm on the Friday afternoon. It will be delivered by Professor Boaventura de Sousa Santos , Sociology, University of Coimbra and Law, University of Wisconsin-Madison. This will be a very fine session on a theme germane to the conference. We hope that many participants will be able to attend.


The conference proper will begin with a Feast of Welcome at 6 pm on the evening of Friday, December 1. It will be held in Mungo Martin House in Thunderbird Park (casual dress; this is a First Nations longhouse of great significance in the renaissance of the carving traditions of the coastal First Nations, especially of Mungo Martin's own people, the Kwakwaka'wakw). The Feast will also welcome us into indigenous story-telling traditions. We expect that there will be two story-tellers, one of whom will be Richard Van Camp, a marvellous novelist and short-story writer of the Tlicho Nation in the North West Territories , who also teaches creative writing at the University of British Columbia .

Sat, December 2 and Sunday December 3

The conference session locations TBA.
