Dylan Robinson: Hooker Distinguished Visiting Professor

 

Dylan Robinson, Harry Lyman Hooker Distinguished Visiting Professor, will be on campus to present both a workshop-style seminar and a public talk.  All are welcome to attend.

Dr. Robinson is a scholar of Stó:lō descent who holds the Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Arts at Queen’s University, located on the traditional lands of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe peoples. His research has been supported by national and international fellowships at the University of California Berkeley, Royal Holloway University of London, in the First Nations Studies Program at the University of British Columbia. He is the co-editor of the collection Opera Indigene, that surveys the history of Indigenous representation in opera and the lesser-known history of opera created with and by Indigenous artists. Robinson’s most recent book, the edited collection Arts of Engagement (Wilfrid Laurier University Press, 2016), examines the role that the arts and Indigenous cultural practices played in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission on the Indian Residential Schools. His forthcoming book, Hungry Listening, focuses on practices of listening from settler colonial and Indigenous perspectives.
