CON­VER­SIONS

Geist - - Miscellany -

Geist has part­nered with the Early Mod­ern Con­ver­sions Project at the In­sti­tute for the Pub­lic Life of Arts and Ideas at Mcgill Uni­ver­sity. As part of the project we’ll be pub­lish­ing ma­te­rial on the sub­ject of con­ver­sion: iden­tity trans­for­ma­tion, re­li­gious con­ver­sion, forced cul­tural con­ver­sion in res­i­den­tial schools, sex­ual con­ver­sions, for ex­am­ple.

Our first piece un­der this rubric is “Clowns, Cake and Ca­noes: This is Canada?” in which Lisa Bird-wil­son ar­gues for the merit of chang­ing our read­ing prac­tices from read­ing to read­ing Indige­nously (see it on page 64). For more info check out ear­ly­mod­ern­con­ver­sions.com.
