Aboriginal Globalization

WINNIPEG, MB – The University of Winnipeg launches a book today on the successful Aboriginal Governance and Globalization Symposium hosted by UWinnipeg and the National Centre for First Nations Governance held in the Winter of 2008.

“The research in this volume shows how and why Aboriginal and Globalization issues converge,” explained UWinnipeg Professor Liliane Rodriguez. “While often seen as separate entities, this publication revisits current thinking on specific aspects of historical, political, educational and social governance.”

Issues Converge
This publication combines academic articles and a summary of the 2008 symposium. Most articles stem from Globalization and Aboriginal Governance research projects supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.

The volume includes work by Canadian and international scholars on relevant issues including Social Justice and the Militarization in the Pacific Islands – Indigenous Peoples and Dutch Globalization in the Atlantic in the 17th century – Appraisal of Lexical Acquisition Among Métis Children – A Comparison between the vocabulary of young French and bilingual speakers from Ottawa and from St. Lazare, Manitoba – and research on the daily life of Aboriginal women in the Lord Selkirk Park Housing Developments in Winnipeg.
