Meaning-Making with Youth and Communities

30th Anniversary of the CTL

30th anniversary logo CTLJanuary 2022 marked the 30th anniversary of the Centre for Teaching and Learning. We have invited Dr. Tuck to not only celebrate our past 30 years of work, but also to signify future directions the Centre would like to take, especially in centering Indigenous and Black futurities, decolonial pedagogies, and Indigenous ways of knowing.

More than just the goals and future directions of the Centre for Teaching and Learning, we suggest that the work centered by Dr. Eve Tuck’s academic research, pedagogy, and activism reflect the commitment of Queen’s University and it’s “responsibility to build a diverse, equitable, inclusive and anti-racist community for our people, to indigenize and decolonize the academy in all that we do” (Deane 2021, Queen’s Strategic Framework); as well as the university’s commitments to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Taskforce “Yakwanastahentéha Aankenjigemi Extending the Rafters” and the PICRDI report.

We hope that Tuck’s formal and informal talks will inspire faculty, students, and staff in engaging with these important questions and inspire action in solidarity with and conversation with Indigenous communities across Turtle Island.

Zoom Webinar

Facilitated by Dr. Eve Tuck, Associate Professor of Critical Race and Indigenous Studies at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), University of Toronto

This presentation engages researching with youth and communities as a set of beliefs about knowledge and knowing, and as an approach that can be built into social science and humanities-based inquiry.

Dr Tuck is Associate Professor of Critical Race and Indigenous Studies at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), University of Toronto. She is Canada Research Chair of Indigenous Methodologies with Youth and Communities. Tuck is the founding director of the Tkaronto CIRCLE Lab. Award-winning Indigenous (Unangax) scholar, Tuck is internationally regarded for her contributions to educational research and Indigenous studies. She has worked closely with diverse urban and rural communities to conduct research that improves education and social policy, particularly for disadvantaged and marginalized youth. Over the past 15 years, Tuck has actively worked to identify and trace harmful practices in social science research, especially with Indigenous communities, and to build participatory approaches to research that are not based in exploitation. Working with collaborators, she has published extensively on theories for social change and social justice in education and research. Themes discussed in her work include decolonization, Indigenous social thought, settler colonialism, antiblackness, politics of research, the significance of land and place in social science research, participatory research ethics, theories of change, and the imperatives of the academy.
