The School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies hosts three annual Lecture Series.

The Madeleine Dion Stout Kétéskwēw Lecture in Indigenous Studies

The Kétéskwēw Lecture in Indigenous Studies was named in honour of Madeleine Kétéskwēw Dion Stout. Dion Stout spear-headed Indigenous programming and initiatives at Carleton and is recognized for her advocacy work for Indigenous health rights and education. For her advocacy and leadership she was appointed to the Order of Canada in 2015 and she continues to speak throughout North America and Europe on topics relating to Indigenous health, reconciliation, and healing.

The Vickers-Verduyn Lecture in Canadian Studies

The Vickers-Verduyn Speakers Series was established in 2011 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Carleton-Trent joint-PhD in Canadian Studies. Since its inauguration the School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies has invited a wide range of scholars, activists and artists to address the ways in which their work potentially challenges or influences approaches to Canadian Studies research.

The Herb Stovel Memorial Lecture in Heritage Conservation was established in 2012 to honour Herb Stovel, who was Associate Professor and coordinator of the Heritage Conservation programme in the School of Canadian Studies at Carleton University from 2004 to 2012.
