To coincide with the 2021 CCA Master’s Students Program, on the topic of Treaty 72: Land and Law by Design, join Rafico Ruiz, Associate Director, Research, for a roundtable that will address architecture and dispossession in what is now known as Canada. The settler state of Canada is a patchwork of contested Treaty land, unceded territories, and ongoing claims to Indigenous territorial jurisdiction. Building on an urgency to recognize Indigenous forms of sovereignty in settler-colonial contexts, there is an increasing need for architects and other professionals designing the built environment to understand the histories of sites in which they work and to transform their existing design practices.
Invited panelists include: Adrian Blackwell (University of Waterloo) and David Fortin (Laurentian University), editors of “c\a\n\a\d\a,” a forthcoming issue of Scapegoat: Architecture / Landscape / Political Economy that delineates a capitalist nation-state and explores the relationship between settler colonialism and contemporary urbanization; Ella den Elzen, Curatorial Assistant, CCA, and co-curator of Middleground: Siting Dispossession, currently on display in the hall cases; Dani Kastelein, Métis architect with interests in Indigenous water rights, as well as researcher and contributor to the “c\a\n\a\d\a” issue; and Irena Latek, professor at the University of Montreal whose research, presented in the same issue of Scapegoat, emphasizes the relationships between limits and urban forms.
