9. (Ad)Verse: Indigenous-Settler Relations
September 24 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
scoff·law /ˈskôflô/ noun INFORMAL•NORTH AMERICAN: a person who flouts the law, especially by failing to comply with a law that is difficult to enforce effectively – Oxford English Dictionary.
The shady machinations of colonial legal proceedings in Canada are brilliantly captured in this personification of Garry Thomas Morse’s titular character. The sharp, funny, and playful long poem Scofflaw explores Indigenous-Settler relations through a global lens. In this event, Garry will discuss ‘we’ vs the enigmatic Scofflaw, who is Hellbent on evading his comeuppance through slippery and metaphysical means.
12:30 – 1:30 pm EDT
