“Sparrow’s Flight” takes the 30th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s statement on the constitutional entrenchment of Aboriginal and treaty rights in R v Sparrow as an opportunity to revisit the case, to reconsider its history, to understand its impact, and to explore its possibility.
This call for proposals seeks contributions to a two-day conference, hosted jointly by the Musqueam Indian Band and the Allard School of Law, that revisit Sparrow. The aim is to create space for broad, meaningful discussions, and with that in mind this call goes out to Indigenous nations engaged in struggles over access to and control of fisheries, and to those whose work grapples with the colonial legacy that section 35 seems intended to address.
Please submit proposals of 250-500 words, outlining the proposed contribution to email@example.com by 1 June 2020.
More details are available in the Call for Proposals.
