The Office of the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and the Department of English Language and Literature invite you to join us for the 2022-2023 Munro Beattie Lecture, "Anishinaabe History and Writing the Future" with Indigenous journalist and author, Waubgeshig Rice.
Inspired by Anishinaabe history and culture within his home community of Wasauksing First Nation, Waubgeshig explores how histories and experiences often overlooked by the dominant culture can make way for a deeper connection across our communities through sharing the richness of stories and the arts.
Waubgeshig Rice is an author and journalist from Wasauksing First Nation. He has written three fiction titles, and his short stories and essays have been published in numerous anthologies. His most recent novel, Moon of the Crusted Snow, was published in 2018 and became a national bestseller. He graduated from the journalism program at Toronto Metropolitan University in 2002, and spent most of his journalism career with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as a video journalist and radio host. He left CBC in 2020 to focus on his literary career. He lives in Sudbury, Ontario with his wife and two sons. His forthcoming novel, Moon of the Turning Leaves, will be published in October 2023.
