Like a number of other RDC faculty members, I recently returned from Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences 2016. There was a lot going on over seven days at the University of Calgary; one of the coolest things was the Big Thinking series that occurred every day at lunch. This lecture series was open to all Congress attendees and the public, and featured fascinating ideas from people like Naomi Klein, the Right Honourable Beverley McLachlin, and Leroy Little Bear. The lectures were recorded and are now available on YouTube, just in time for the slower pace of summer when you might have time to watch them. They’re all available from the main Big Thinking page – just click on the title. Enjoy!
