Perspectives on Openness: Honouring Indigenous Ways of Knowing

This year’s theme for Open Access Week is Open With Purpose: Taking Action to Build Structural Equity and Inclusion.
In an era of open scholarship and research, how do we as a research community navigate and balance openness while respecting Indigenous knowledge and cultural expression?
Hosted by the York University Libraries, and moderated by Stacy Allison-Cassin, this Open Access Week panel discussion event offers an opportunity to encourage broader participation in conversations and actions around emerging scholarly communication issues and will center Indigenous approaches to open scholarship and research.
Join us online on Tuesday, October 20th at 1:00 pm, with Stacy Allison-Cassin (Associate Librarian), Alan Ojiig Corbiere, Assistant Professor (Department of History), Deborah McGregor, Associate Professor (Osgoode Hall Law School and Faculty of Environmental Studies), and Sean Hillier, Assistant Professor (School of Health Policy & Management), as they lead a discussion on the themes of openness, open scholarship, and Indigenous knowledge.
