Position Papers


What does it mean to live on stolen or occupied land? How might you approach your teaching and learning in light of where you are living or where you come from? Introduced by Dr. Sophie McCall, these "Position Papers" are reflections of educators on their own positionality, especially as it is shaped by the stories and histories of the land they stand upon. These papers can guide you in learning about the territories under your feet––one of the most important first steps in better understanding your responsibilities in teaching and learning from Indigenous literatures.
