Archives of Ontario offers chance to view Treaty No. 9 at Keele Campus

Archives of Ontario

On Nov. 8, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Archives of Ontario invites the York Community to its Keele Campus location to see the original written document of Treaty No. 9 (the James Bay Treaty), a 1905 agreement between Ojibway (Anishinaabe), Cree (including the Omushkegowuk) and other Indigenous Nations (Algonquin) and the Crown.

The event is part of Treaties Recognition Week – running this year from Nov. 5 to 11 – which was inaugurated in 2016 through legislation and encourages students and residents of Ontario to learn more about treaty rights and relationships.

The James Bay Treaty, first entered into in 1905 to 1906, covers roughly two-thirds of Ontario and is meant to embody the nation-to-nation relationship between First Nations and the Crown.

The Archive of Ontario is also offering an online exhibit, which offers further historical context about the time before and after the treaty was signed, as well as what led to its existence. The virtual exhibit also explores different interpretations of the treaty, its impact on Indigenous communities and the role that archival records and other forms of memory have come to play in Treaty No. 9’s story.

Join dialogues on degrowth at upcoming webinar series

Aerial Of Colorful Autumn Rivers & Lakes Though Mountains In Northern Ontario Canada

Beginning Nov. 22, York University’s Faculty of Environmental & Urban Change (EUC) will present “Aim high, degrow: dialogues on degrowth,” a series of six lunchtime webinars addressing the many sides of degrowth, which argues we cannot maintain infinite economic growth on a finite planet.

The series will introduce key degrowth concepts and some of the major issues, debates and possibilities emerging from the field. It will be held virtually and all are welcome to attend.

Degrowth is a growing global movement of activists and researchers that prioritizes social and ecological well-being ahead of corporate profits, over-production and excess consumption. This requires radical redistribution, reduction in the material size of the global economy and a shift in common values towards care, solidarity and autonomy for people and their communities.

The webinar series aims to provide a space for deeper dialogues on degrowth, involving scholars and audiences from within and outside the degrowth world to explore key debates and how they connect to other issues like urbanization, decolonization, technology and the role of the state. Each discussion will run for an hour and is programmed around lunch hours. Guest panellists come from around the world and the moderators will be drawn from EUC.

The first event of the series, “Degrowth: a slogan, a movement, or a concept?,” takes place Wednesday, Nov. 22 at 1 p.m. It will provide an overview of the economic and ecological premises of degrowth and its main arguments. The speakers are York University Professor Emeritus Peter Victor and Elena Hofferberth, a researcher at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland.

The other webinars in the series are:

  • “Decolonization and feminism: does degrowth cut it?” on Thursday, Dec. 14 at 11:30 a.m.;
  • “Degrowth and the city: urbanization and planning for degrowth” on Wednesday, Jan. 31 at 11 a.m.;
  • “Degrowth and systems: back to the caves or back to the future?” on Monday, Feb. 12 at 11:30 a.m.;
  • “Degrowth and the State” on Friday, March 22 at 12:30 p.m.; and
  • “Transitioning to a degrowth future: naïve or revolutionary?” on Thursday, April 18 at 12:30 p.m.

York experts to lead discussion on aging in community lecture

Older adults in conversation
Group Of Senior Friends Chatting At Home Together

Experts from York University and Mackenzie Health will come together for a panel discussion on Nov. 6, in collaboration with the City of Vaughan, to shed light on the complex journey of aging.

This collaborative event, titled “Aging into the Future,” aims to explore the fundamental themes of health equity, empowerment and the significance of relationships between health-care providers, communities and families.

Taking place at Vaughan City Hall from 6:30 to 8 p.m., the community lecture is poised to unite thought leaders and professionals in an engaging and insightful conversation on innovative strategies to transform the landscape of older adult care. Experts will share insights on how researchers, health-care practitioners and policymakers are working to enhance the quality of life for older adults.

Panellists at the event are:

  • York University Professor Tamara Daly, an award-winning professor of health policy and equity, the director of the York University Centre of Aging Research & Education (YU-CARE), and the director of the Social Sciences & Humanities Research Council Partnership Grant Imagine Aging;
  • York University Associate Professor Mary Fox, a world-renowned expert in gerontological nursing and a health services researcher; and
  • Dr. Dmitriy Petrov, a practising geriatrician at Mackenzie Health with expertise in neurodegeneration and frailty.

Fox says that current policy emphasis on early hospital discharge helps avoid the risks associated with extended hospital stays for older people, but also leads to them being discharged “quicker and sicker.”

“Consequently, it is essential that older peoples and their families know how to manage care once home,” says Fox. “Health-care professionals, such as nurses, are pivotal in preparing them to manage such care. As a society, we need to ensure that health-care professionals have the support they need to fulfill this role.”

At York, she says researchers work closely with clinical leaders in developing health-care strategies that address the needs of an aging population.

The aim of YU-CARE is to support and promote the work of its researchers and graduate trainees who study changes, challenges and policies to support aging at individual, organizational and societal levels. The research conducted at YU-CARE encompasses ageism, aging policy, healthy aging, equity, health determinants, health services, diversity, gender, care settings and more.

“The experience of aging is not cut in stone. We have the capacity to imagine how we want our communities to be well supported as they age,” says Daly. “York researchers conduct leading-edge research exploring the needs of older people and their care teams as well as assessing how well our health and social care systems are functioning. It is vital to have conversations about what works – here and elsewhere – to help shape the future for us all.”

The event, moderated by Jill Dempsey, a veteran CBC Radio personality and York University alum, is open to the public and registration is recommended.

Film screening highlights Department of Dance residency

On Nov. 1, the Department of Dance and the Harriet Tubman Institute will host a screening of the biographical documentary MABOUNGOU: Being in the World as part of dancer and choreographer Florent Nikiéma’s guest artist residency at York University.

Florent Nikiéma
Florent Nikiéma

As part of the residency – which began Oct. 14 and will end Nov. 3 – Nikiéma has been working with the students of the York Dance Ensemble, the Department of Dance’s pre-professional performance company for third- and fourth-year dance majors, on the creation of a new piece. Alongside this process, Nikiéma is also guest teaching each of the dance program’s undergraduate modern dance classes, including Traditional and Current Dances of Sub-Saharan Africa, the Department of Music’s West African Drum Ensemble course, as well as two courses in the Drama and Creative Arts program at Glendon.

“We are so fortunate to have an artist of Florent’s international standing working with our undergraduates,” says Susan Lee, assistant professor in dance and the artistic director of the York Dance Ensemble. “Exposing our students to different working processes and to new creative ideas is an invaluable experience for them.”

Nikiéma will also be collaborating with Associate Professor Ian Garrett in the Department of Theatre on the lighting and projections design for the new piece that will premiere in February 2024.

A practitioner of contemporary African dance and music, Nikiéma studied under Senegalese artist and African modern dance pioneer Germaine Acogny at the École des Sables before his engagement with Tanztheater Wuppertal in Germany. In November 2022, Nikiéma toured in Toronto as part of the groundbreaking remount of Pina Bausch’s iconic 1975 work Rite of Spring with an all-African cast. During his time in Toronto, Nikiéma came to York University to give a contemporary African dance workshop. His class was so well-received that Associate Professor Bridget Cauthery applied for a Social Sciences & Humanities Research Council Knowledge Mobilization grant to bring Nikiéma back to York for a longer period.

Nikiéma’s creative work is informed by his deep knowledge of traditional West African dance forms, Acogny technique and by concepts from Western European concert dance. His choreography prioritizes ecological attunement to landscapes and to the non-human. Stating that “human beings have lost the true meaning of the term cohabitation with nature and its components,” Nikiéma’s new work for the York Dance Ensemble will respond to his concerns for environmental disaster.

In addition to the screening, there will be an artist discussion panel featuring four artists all originally from Africa, now living in the diaspora: Governor General’s Performing Arts Award-winner Zab Maboungou; Executive Director of the African Dance Ensemble Isaac Akrong; dancer Pulga Muchochoma; and Nikiéma. The event is sponsored by PUBLIC, the journal of arts, culture and ideas.

“This Department of Dance and Special Tubman Talk event presents an opportunity for African-based choreographers to define their approaches to creating, teaching and performance that cannot be reduced to normative definitions of traditional or contemporary dance,” says artist/scholar Collette “Coco” Murray, who will be moderating the discussion panel. “I look forward to having this important and far-reaching conversation with my colleagues.”

Libraries presents symposium as part of International Open Access Week

Scott Library Learning Commons on the Keele Campus

A unique symposium organized by York University Libraries (YUL) as part of International Open Access Week will bring together leaders in the fields of open educational resources (OER), archives and special collections.

Hilary Barlow
Hilary Barlow

York’s W.P. Scott Chair for Research in E-Librarianship, Hilary Barlow, will lead the online event on Thursday, Oct. 26 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. via Zoom. The event features two guest presenters – Danielle Manning, outreach officer at the Archives of Ontario, and Carrie Schwier, outreach and public services archivist at Indiana University – with a concluding presentation by Barlow on her current research. 

“This event brings together Archives, Special Collections and open education (OE) in a way that is rarely explored and under-documented,” says Barlow. “While much has been studied and written about making archives and special collections available online, connections to OE and OER are scant. This symposium bridges that connection.”

This year’s Open Access Week theme, “Community vs. Commercialization,” looks at advocating for unrestricted access to knowledge while prioritizing community needs over profit. Archives can play a key role in empowering communities by providing free and open access to a number of resources, which promotes inclusivity and can help democratize information. 

Archives and special collections in academic libraries are a valuable resource for faculty and students and often contain hidden gems such as university records, private papers, rare books, maps and other primary source material that support an array of academic fields.

By enabling these resources to be properly described and in some cases digitized, YUL, like other academic libraries, has been able to engage a broader audience in their use,” says Sarah Coysh, YUL’s associate dean, digital engagement and strategy. “YUL has been looking into how these resources can be accessed globally and has taken inspiration from the open education movement.”

“I began my research by asking if archives and special collections materials could be shared as open educational resources and wondering if anyone in the field was actually doing this,” says Barlow.

The OE movement, and OER specifically, contribute to advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4: Quality Education. By providing free, reusable and remixable digital resources, OE initiatives contribute to removing barriers to education, as they can be accessed by anyone with an internet connection.

GLAM institutions (galleries, libraries, archives and museums), and archives and special collections organizations in particular, also contribute to advancing SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities, notably the sub-goal 11.4, to “strengthen efforts to protect and safeguard the world’s cultural and natural heritage.”

Manning will present her work with the Archives of Ontario (AO) and share how her team is building community through GLAM-Wiki. Manning will share case studies on AO’s Wikimedia Commons uploads and how it has impacted community engagement. A second presentation, by Schwier, will examine concrete examples of implementation from an active primary source instruction program that serves over 30 academic departments, ranging from art to science. 

“These presentations by Danielle Manning and Carrie Schwier show that there are practitioners in the field using innovative OE methods to make their collections more accessible online,” says Barlow.

Barlow will conclude the event with a presentation from her research, “Open Archives: The Intersection Between Open Education, Archives, and Special Collections.” This includes the results of 22 case study interviews with archivists and librarians on the subject of open education, and details of an upcoming larger survey. Earlier in her term as W.P. Scott Chair in E-Librarianship, Barlow worked with other members of YUL’s Open Education Steering Committee to survey York faculty on their familiarity with and use of OER

Annual Alchemy Lecture to propose a more beautiful world


The Canada Research Chair in Black Studies in the Humanities and the York University Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies will host the second annual Alchemy Lecture – titled “Five Manifestos for the Beautiful World” – on Nov. 2.

Christina Sharpe close-up portrait

The Alchemy Lecture, which launched in 2022, aims to bring together thinkers and practitioners from different disciplines and geographies to consider pressing societal issues.

For the second time, the event will be moderated by Christina Sharpe, professor and Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Black Studies in the Humanities at York University, who was recently nominated as a U.S. National Book Award finalist for her acclaimed work Ordinary Notes.

The lecture is a hybrid event and registration is now open to all.

The five lecturers, and their manifesto titles, are:

Joseph M. Pierce, “A Manifesto for Speculative Relations”

A Cherokee Nation citizen, Pierce is an associate professor at Stony Brook University, author of Argentine Intimacies: Queer Kinship in an Age of Splendor, 1890-1910 (SUNY Press, 2019) and co-editor of Políticas del amor: Derechos sexuales y escrituras disidentes en el Cono Sur (Cuarto Propio, 2018).

His Alchemy Lecture will propose a method of restoring Indigenous forms of relation in pursuit of a possible future in which life (all life) becomes possible, in spite of the ongoing brutality of colonial infrastructure, economic extraction and historical erasure. Pierce aims for the lecture to be a prayer offered with humility and gratitude to the ancestral relations that open up speculative possibilities for bodies reverberating in good relation. It is a manifesto for landing, grounding and relating; for opening the body, in all its forms and transitions, towards an imperative mutuality.

Phoebe Boswell, “Manifesto of the As Yet Unlived Thing”

From Kenya and the United Kingdom, Boswell is an artist whose work is anchored to what she describes as a “a restless state of diasporic consciousness.”

Centred around drawing – but encompassing moving image, animation, painting, photography, sound, writing and immersive site-sensitive installation – her work explores notions of freedom, protest, grief, intimacy, migration, love, the body and its world-making, using auto/biographical stories as catalysts to contest histories and imagine futures.

Her manifesto will recount her experience in 2020 receiving an invitation to be the first artist-in-residence of a virtual museum being imagined, designed and built amidst the anxious haze of a global pandemic. It will recount the experience of considering how to make and create an imagined space where logistical restrictions would not matter and explore questions like, “What could be made in this space and in this moment, sitting at home alone, world outside collapsing, and our reliance on technology edging us towards relation to the virtual as a tangible, lived and intimate thing? What could be dreamt there? What could be realized? Where could we go and what could we do?”

Cristina Rivera Garza, “Subjunctive: A Manifesto about Language, Territory, and the Yet to Come”

From Mexico and the United States, Rivera Garza is an award-winning author of six novels, four collections of short stories, five collections of poetry and four non-fiction books. She is a Distinguished Professor in Hispanic Studies and director of the PhD program in creative writing in Spanish at the University of Houston. Rivera Garza is the recipient of a 2020 MacArthur Fellowship and a finalist for the 2020 National Book Critic’s Circle Award for Criticism.

Rivera Garza’s manifesto will explore the subjunctive, a grammatical tool that allows for the expression of the hypothetical, and how it can question the relationship between territory, human and non-human beings, and the worlds to come. She will discuss how, widely used in the Spanish-speaking world, the subjunctive breaks from the tyranny of the future and its many apocalyptic dead-ends by harnessing the potency of imaginings and desires half-disclosed to affect the yet to come.

Saidiya Hartman, “Crow Jane Makes a Modest Proposal to Improve Race Relations”

From the U.S., Saidiya Hartman is the author of Wayward Lives, Beautiful Experiments: Intimate Histories of Social UpheavalLose Your Mother: A Journey Along the Atlantic Slave Route and Scenes of Subjection: Terror, Slavery, and Self-Making in Nineteenth-Century America. A MacArthur Genius Fellow, she has been a Guggenheim Fellow, Cullman Fellow and Fulbright Scholar. She is a University Professor at Columbia University, in the Department of English & Comparative Literature. In addition to her books, she has published articles in journals such as South Atlantic Quarterly, Brick, Small Axe, Callaloo, The New Yorker and The Paris Review

Her manifesto will be what he describes as a rant in prose, a “wild impassioned shout, unwise remarks and untimely suggestions about exacerbating the current crisis and cultivating recalcitrance. It is a fabulation, a tirade about the ruins of political speech and the exhaustion of standard and habitual methods of approaching the problem.”

Janaína Oliveira, “Manifesto for Curation”

From Brazil, Janaína Oliveira is a film scholar and independent curator and professor at the Federal Institute of Rio de Janeiro and consultant for JustFilms/Ford Foundation. Oliveira has a PhD in history and was a Fulbright Visiting Scholar at the Center for African Studies at Howard University, and has focused on Black and African cinemas. She has also worked as a consultant, juror and panellist in several film festivals and institutions in Brazil and abroad.

She is the founder of the Black Cinema Itinerant Forum and was the Flaherty Film Seminar (New York) programmer in 2021 and for the Zózimo Bulbul Black Film Festival (Rio de Janeiro) from 2017 to 2021. Besides participating in other curatorial initiatives, she is part of the BlackStar Film Festival curatorial team as the documentary feature film section Chair and board of the William Greaves Fund from Firelight Media.

Her talk will consider film curatorship and its link to care, notably not only what is shown but the many layers of care involved in how it is shown and in the relationship with whom one wants to show it. It points, therefore, to the urgency of broadening the understanding and reflections of what is the film curator’s work and the possibilities of transforming the world with moving images.

The event will have a reception from 6 to 7 p.m., followed by the lecture, which runs from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Sandra Faire & Ivan Fecan Theatre in the CIBC Lobby.

This lecture, like last year’s, will culminate in the publication of a book bearing the title of Five Manifestos for the Beautiful World in the imprint, Alchemy by Knopf.
