Pilot Initiative: Indigenous Critical and Creative Studies

Graduate students interested in the study of Indigenous literary and oral traditions are invited to consider Indigenous Critical and Creative Studies (ICCS), a new transdisciplinary initiative organized in partnership with faculty from a range of disciplines and academic units, including English and the Institute for Critical Indigenous Studies. Rooting the study of Indigenous literatures within and through cultural, political, intellectual, linguistic, and artistic contexts, ICCS offers students the opportunity to focus their graduate work on vibrant, trans-disciplinary and community-grounded scholarship in Indigenous studies.  For more information about this pilot initiative, please contact Lorraine Weir (Lorraine.Weir@ubc.ca) or Daniel Heath Justice (daniel.justice@ubc.ca).
