Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

(En)Gendering Hate Groups: Misogyny in the Extremist Right Wing

While often neglected in favour of a focus on race, ethnicity and religion, gender is also at the core of the historical and contemporary far right hate movement. Clearly, the white race cannot survive if “its women” are not controlled and constrained. I will explore how misogyny informs the ways in which the right thinks about and acts upon gender, sex, and sexuality.

This talk took place on Monday, March 8, 2021.
