Miri Presents Soup & Scholars Tuesday, April 18 2017 12:00 – 2:00 pm

Join a panel of scholars for a lively and informal discussion of some of McMaster’s current and planned Indigenous research: from cancer, to water, to effects of Indigenous knowledge on well-being, and intergenerational interactions. Learn something new, meet people from across campus, build McMaster’s interdisciplinary intellectual community, and forge new collaborations.

Each panelist will present for ~3 minutes, followed by general discussion, and then panelists will disperse among tables for continued informal discussion over lunch/coffee/dessert.
