Starting a Conversation with Norah Bowman: Mapping Whiteness and White Supremacy on Unceded Syilx Territory in the Central Okanagan

December 2, 2020 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Norah Bowman, PhD, is a professor at Okanagan College. She is chair of Interdisciplinary Studies and teaches English Lit as well as Gender, Sexualities, and Women’s Studies. Norah is a school board trustee in School District 23. Her book of poetry and prose about Okanagan Mountain will be published with Caitlin Press in 2021.

In this free, noon-hour discussion, Bowman will talk about her recent research around  the idea of mapping the movement, presence, forced relocation, and cultural and economic contributions of BIPOC in this valley, and seeing how Central Okanagan Whiteness is a result of purposeful white supremacist culture.

Starting a Conversation is a free, noon hour discussion series featuring informal conversations with local and visiting scholars. Everyone is welcome!
