This annual event is sponsored by a number of academic programs at Trent and seeks to examine and experience our understanding of the land with a focus on the study of Canadian, environmental, and Indigenous issues. This unique event celebrates interdisciplinary, experiential learning.
Everyone – faculty, staff, alumni and students – is invited! A special invitation is extended to all international students and scholars.
Wanapitei has been selected primarily for the beauty and remoteness of its location. Away from the urbanized south, the Temagami country is rich in history and home to generations of Teme-Augama-Anishnabai.
Each day, faculty and students will organize into small groups for guided hiking and canoe trips in the immediate region. Expeditions will be tailored to suit the skill level of participants. Instruction in canoeing will be offered to those indicating an interest. Each group will pack a lunch and eat on the land. Late afternoon and evening programs will include lectures, films, readings, square dancing, and informal discussion.Each year, we invite a number of people to share papers and presentations related to the colloquium themes around the land. If you are interested in presenting your work and research, please contact us.
