Thinking Spatially Symposium: Indigenous Data Sovereignty

October 27, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm


About the Event:

Concepts of Indigenous data sovereignty challenge the western academic perspectives on information, data, and ownership. Join us at the 6th annual Thinking Spatially symposium for a series of presentations featuring Indigenous researchers exploring issues of data ownership and access, including spatial data, and discussing how these issues need to be approached in research and public communication. Who should have access to what knowledge, and in what circumstances? How do researchers navigate these issues while working within a large research institution? Panelists will share how they navigate issues of data sovereignty in their own work and with community partners.

This is a hybrid event: Online & Northrop, Crosby Seminar Room (Room 240, 2nd Floor)
