Oct 12 Confluence of Voices: Social Work Ethics, Metis Pioneers, and Margaret Laurence

Thursday, October 12 | 11:00am | RDC Library North Nook

Join us as we celebrate new books by three faculty members of RDC’s School of Arts & Sciences. All are welcome to this free event in the Library's North Nook. Refreshments will be provided and the books will be available for purchase. 

Margaret Laurence Writes Africa and Canada (Wilfrid Laurier University Press, 2017), by Laura K. Davis, English instructor, is the first book to examine how Laurence addresses decolonization and nation building in 1950s Somalia and Ghana and in 1960s and 1970s English Canada. Focusing on Laurence’s published works as well as unpublished letters not yet discussed by critics, the book articulates how Laurence and her characters are poised between African colonies of occupation during decolonization and the settler-colony of English Canada during the implementation of Canadian multiculturalism.

Elaine Spencer, Social Work instructor, is a co-editor of Social Work Ethics: Progressive, Practical, and Relational Approaches (Oxford University Press, 2017). This text provides a current overview of the contexts in which social work happens, the ethical challenges that social workers face across Canada, and future directions of the field.

Metis Pioneers: Marie Rose Delorme Smith and Isabella Clark Hardisty Lougheed (University of Alberta Press, 2017), by Doris MacKinnon, History instructor, explores the lives of two Metis women who settled in southern Alberta as the fur trade transitioned to a sedentary agricultural economy. The book is scheduled for release in December 2017 and may be pre-ordered from Chapters and Amazon.
