Weds Mar 30, 6-8 pm UVic Student Union Bldg, Room B028
Topic: Film – School of Secrets
The Men’s Circle Coordinating Collective would like to acknowledge that the men’s circle takes place on W’SANEC and Lekwungen traditional territory. As a group of settler men, we particularly want to name that heteropatriarchy has been a primary tool of colonization, through violence on the land and bodies of indigenous people, and the ongoing attempts to impose settler patriarchal masculinities on indigenous men. This leads us to the understanding that learning to practice an accountable and feminist masculinity must also grapple with the need to show up in solidarity with indigenous resurgence.
Details: For the final circle of the semester we will be watching a brief documentary, School of Secrets (40 minutes), on how UBC handled sexual assaults caused by Dmitry Mordvinov. The second half of the circle will be devoted to discussing the themes of the documentary. As always, snacks will be provided. Hope to see you there!
