What’s New in Education? (Spring Term)


Course description

Let me Tell you a Story: The Life and Works of Richard Wagamese

Carmen Rodriguez de France, PhD, Department of Indigenous Education, UVic

Friday, January 25: 12:30 to 1:45 pm

A wonderful storyteller in life and in death, Ojibway writer Richard Wagamese left us with a legacy of redemption, hope, and pathways to reconciliation through his heartfelt stories, poems, and life experiences. In this presentation, I will share some of his words in stories, in his newspaper columns, and in the texts to his sons whom he never really got to know. Through these reflections, we will learn about how the spirit endures, how it hopes, and how it heals; and how Education continues to be a force through which this can be realized.

Of Kickapoo and Mexican heritage, Carmen Rodriguez de France has been a grateful visitor on the land of the Lekwungen and SENĆOTEN speaking people for 22 years. Carmen’s career spans thirty-four years with participation in a broad range of educational, community service, and research activities. Carmen teaches courses on Indigenous education and pedagogy in the Faculty of Education, and contributes in the Social Justice Program and the Latin American Studies Program at the University of Victoria. Her most recent research involves partnerships with community organizations to support the enactment of the Calls to Action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report .
