downstream: reimagining water relations through interdisciplinary writing and Indigenous perspectives

A discussion between writers and scholars Rita Wong, Dorothy Christian, and Chaya Ocampo Go

Wilson Lounge @New College, University of Toronto

Join us for a talk with renowned writers and scholars Rita Wong and Dorothy Christian as they discuss their collection downstream: reimagining water (2016). Moderated by York University geographer Chaya Ocampo Go, the authors and editors of this book will discuss their collaborative work and the possibilities that interdisciplinary writing practices and Indigenous perspectives offer to reimagine our relationships to water.

About downstream: Growing out of a conference organized by Lee Maracle, on Imagining Asian and Native Women, downstream brings together artists, scientists, writers, Elders, environmentalists, scholars, and activists to focus on cultivating peaceful and creative cultures that foreground water as a builder of relationships.
