USask DSA Book Club

This month the DSA Book Club is reading As We Have Always Done: Indigenous Freedom through Radical Resistance by Leanne Betasamosake Simpson. Join us for Book Club on November 24th from 8:30am-10:00am and/or November 30th from 12:30-1:30pm as we discuss decolonization through Indigenous theorizing: 

"I have learned more about this battered world from reading Leanne Betasamosake Simpson than from almost any writer alive today. A dazzlingly original thinker and an irresistible stylist, Simpson has gifted us with a field guide not to mere political resistance but to deep and holistic transformation. It arrives at the perfect time." - Naomi Klein

The Division of Social Accountability will be giving away free copies of this month’s selection to the first five people who register for this month’s book club!

Pick-up a copy of the book online, or from a local retailer. As We Have Always Done is also available from Saskatoon Public Library as an e-book.

Nov 25, 2022  

This month the Division of Social Accountability takes the opportunity to reflect critically on decolonization. Over the last few years, the word decolonization has become ubiquitous, permeating classrooms, workplaces, and homes across the country—across the world really. Conversations about decolonization have spread across continents, as people try to reimagine their home nations in the absence of colonial influence. On November 25th from 12:30pm-1:30pm , we offer a webinar with Dr. Jacob Alhassan and Erica Violet Lee, who will discuss pathways to decolonization from a global perspective. The speakers will present on decolonial thought as influenced by leaders such as Fanon, and Nelson Mandela. Join us for what is sure to be a riveting dialogue between these two brilliant thinkers.

Panelists:

Erica Violet Lee is a professional writer, scholar, community organizer, and poet from Treaty Six based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and Toronto, Canada. She is nêhiyaw from Thunderchild Cree Nation in Saskatchewan. Erica is the author of her debut book “On the Prairies We Will Live Forever” which is forthcoming with Penguin Random House and has edited award-winning poetry and non-fiction manuscripts. Erica holds a BA in Political Theory from the University of Saskatchewan and an MEd in Social Justice Education from the University of Toronto. She has over ten years of experience teaching at a university level and has delivered hundreds of invited lectures and workshops around the world. Erica’s work relates to Indigenous freedom, abolition, climate justice, governance, law, cross-cultural solidarity, sovereignty, feminism, love, and joy.

Dr. Jacob Alhassan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Community Health and Epidemiology, College of Medicine, University of Saskatchewan. Jacob also serves as the Academic co-lead for University of Saskatchewan’s global health certificate. He is trained in health administration, public policy & global health, African studies and population health from the universities of Ghana (Ghana), Durham (UK), Oxford (UK) and Saskatchewan (Canada). He is an activist-scholar with a particular interest in how politics influences poverty and educational and health inequalities.
