The Woodrow Lloyd and Nash Memorial Lectures are staples of the University of Regina calendar. Typically, they’re held at different points in the year. In 2016, though, they’re being held back-to-back. Part of the reasoning for that, perhaps, is that two lectures are thematically related.
The Nash Memorial Lecture is being held on Tuesday Feb. 23. The speaker is Queen’s University (Belfast) professor Kieran McElvoy who will draw on the troubled sectarian history of his homeland in a talk titled “Truth, Justice, and Reconciliation: Dealing with the Past in Northern Ireland”. The Nash Lecture is being held at Campion College Auditorium on the university campus with a 7 p.m. start time. You can find more information on the U of R website.
The Woodrow Lloyd Memorial Lecture is on Wednesday Feb. 24. The guest speaker is Murray Sinclair, who was the chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada that examined the tragic legacy of the residential school system in Canada. His talk will be held at the Education Auditorium on the university campus at 7 p.m. You can find more information on the U of R website.
