Acknowledging the Land: A Campus-wide Conversation

Acknowledging the Land: A Campus-wide Conversation

Thursday, April 14, 2022 at 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

In recent years many academic departments, organizations, and museums have composed statements that acknowledge the Indigenous communities past and present that have lived on and stewarded the natural resources of the land we now occupy. In this panel discussion, we draw together Oberlin faculty, staff, and students from across Oberlin to communally grapple with what it means to acknowledge the land from our own departmental and disciplinary perspectives. Cosponsored with the Bonner Center for Community-Engaged Learning, Teaching, and Research.

While we would like to host in-person events at the Allen in the spring, due to the unpredictable nature of COVID, we may need to switch to an online format. If you would like to be informed about event plans as they develop, please complete this form.
