Anthropology EDI Workshop

In March 2023 our department hosted an Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) workshop with
funding from the NSERC EDI Institutional Capacity-Building Grant. Dr. Lisa Hodgetts
(Associate Professor of Anthropology at Western University and Past President of the Canadian
Archaeological Association) visited Thunder Bay and gave a seminar titled ‘Towards justice in
research and teaching: Remaking power relations in archaeology and beyond.’ Later that
day, Anthropology department faculty, grad students, technicians, and a contract lecturer
gathered to discuss the most pressing equity, diversity, and inclusion issues for our discipline and
department, and to brainstorm concrete steps towards justice in research, teaching, and service.
Dr. Hodgetts’ presentation slides and the list of ideas generated by the workshop
participants can be viewed via the links provided.
