The Mi'kmaq - Wolastoqey Centre is delighted to have Hannah Wyile, PhD candidate in the School of Political Studies at the University of Ottawa, join us on Thursday, Nov. 29, from 2 - 4 p.m., in Marshall d'Avray Hall auditorium, 143.

Hannah Wyile studies theories and practices of political reconciliation in Canada. She has an MA in Political Science from the University of Victoria and a BA in Human Rights and Political Science from Carleton University. Her master’s thesis investigates the ways in which alternative conceptions of politics challenge dominant approaches to reconciliation between Indigenous and non-indigenous peoples, and explores the relationship between reconciliation and treaty relations. Hannah's dissertation project traces the genealogy of reconciliation in Canadian politics in order to analyze its use as political concept and its effects on inter-group relations.   

Topics will include : Peace and Friendship between Indigenous and Settler Nations: How to Rebuild and Treaty Relations in the 21st Century, Rethinking Reconciliation: On Building a Politics of Peace and Friendship, Peer Mentors and Workshops.
