Featuring exhibits at the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre (IKBLC), Asian Library, and book displays at several library branches, the (Un)History month activities introduce ways UBC Indigenous scholars are bridging communities and transforming academic spaces through Indigenous approaches to research, pedagogy, and governance. It aims to educate and invite dialogue about (inter)relationships between place, recognition, and memory.
The UBC Education Library will also have book displays on the main level. One on the table near the circulation desk and another in the glass display case near the Reference area. Photos of the displays will be posted shortly in an upcoming blog post.
