John Ralston Saul, C.C., O.Ont is an award-winning essayist and novelist. In his talk, “People in place: the worldview we need,” he will touch on themes of Indigenous knowledge, resurgence and the importance of place.

His fourteen works have been translated into 28 languages in 37 countries. His latest work, The Comeback (Le Grand Retour) is an examination of the remarkable resurgence to power of Indigenous peoples in Canada. Saul’s recent writings on immigration and citizenship are increasingly positioning him as one of the leading voices on the subject worldwide.

This free lecture is part of the Canada 150 speaker series. It is sponsored by the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation and hosted by the School of Environmental Studies as a keynote talk of the Ethnoecology Symposium, May 2-5. 

There will be a book signing following the talk.
