CSSE Conference 2018 University of Regina

The CSSE Annual Conference is held in conjunction with the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. This bilingual conference provides an opportunity for discussion of educational issues among practitioners and educational scholars from across the nation.

The University of Regina is predominately situated in Treaty 4 Territory with a presence in Treaty 6 Territory. Treaty 4 is the traditional territory of the Cree, Saulteaux, Nakota, Lakota and Dakota peoples, and is the homeland of the Métis people. As educators in these territories, it is our collective priority to ensure all learners gain a deeper understanding of our shared histories and contemporary relationships. Indigenization and reconciliation are our collective responsibilities. [source: http://www.uregina.ca/education/about-us/index.html]

Dear CSSE delegates,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the annual conference of the Canadian Society for the Study of Education, held in conjunction with the Congress for the Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Regina. CSSE formally acknowledges that University of Regina is located in the territories of the nêhiyawak, Anihšināpēk, and Dakota, Lakota, and Nakoda, and the homeland of the Métis. Today, these lands continue to be the shared territory of many diverse peoples from near and far. The nêhiyawak originally referred to Regina as oskana kā-asastēki which literally means “the place where bones are piled up.” This is why Regina’s nickname is “Pile O’Bones” and this is the origin of the name of the University’s current location in Wascana Park. I invite you to use this acknowledgment in all of your conference sessions, as a reminder that our conference is taking place on Indigenous lands. More: PRESIDENT’S WELCOME



As Acting Dean of the Faculty of Education, it is my pleasure to welcome you all to the
University of Regina for CSSE 2018! We are delighted to host educational researchers from across Canada for an exciting week of academic exchange. I would like to thank our conference organizers Wanneta Martin and Keith Adolph in their roles as Local Area Coordinators and as well as students, faculty, and staff who also volunteered their time. More: Dean’s Welcome
