Hello again dear colleagues and community,
This email is a reminder about THIS THURSDAY'S event: AGSA's very own Racial
Justice Working Group "Anthropology and Racial Justice" Event Series continues
on this Thursday, December 2nd at 4:30pm ET in the screening room at 3475 Peel
with a film screening of Zacharias Kunuk's award-winning drama, "One Day in the
LIfe of Noah Piugattuk."
This event is now a hybrid event. If you are coming in person, please register
For those attending remotely, the digital video of One Day in the Life of Noah
Piugattuk is accessible by signing in through the McGill
library<https://mcgill.on.worldcat.org/v2/oclc/1238032670>. You are welcome to
watch at home at a time of your own choosing and then participate in the
discussion on December 2nd via Zoom, around 6:30pm:
The film is followed by a discussion led by our very own Department Chair, Lisa
Stevenson—and then on to Thomson House to continue the discussion and forging
of community bonds (highly encouraged)!
Kapuivik, north Baffin Island, 1961. Noah Piugattuk’s nomadic Inuit band live
and hunt by dogteam, just as his ancestors did when he was born in 1900. When
the white man known as Boss arrives in camp, what appears as a chance meeting
soon opens up the prospect of momentous change.
See the attached poster and REGISTRATION LINK for more info re: public health
measures, etc. and to register (also here: https://bit.ly/RJWGFilm).
Looking forward to seeing you there!
With an increasing amount of excitement,
(On behalf of the rest of the Racial Justice Working Group)
