Survival 101: Mythbusting

Dunning 12 / presented by QCRED

Where have all the people of colour and Indigenous folks gone? Our presence is marked by our absence in the history of our university. At least the version you get from Queen’s.

Get ready to disMantle the myths of Queen’s recruitment, admissions, and Orientation Week!

It’s time to smash the walls of lies and learn about the not-so-happy history of our school. This workshop will highlight some of the historical experiences of racialized members of the Queen’s community, from the 1800s to today. We will learn about the experiences of past students as well as the histories of resistance to  the everyday violence unleashed by the university. It will also explore how Queen’s operates locally and globally to steal land, exploit labour, and extract resources from the Global South and Indigenous peoples around the world.
