John Borrows


The IIO is pleased to announce the first Speaker Series for 2023!

Please join us in welcoming Professor John Borrows, as he delivers a public lecture on Voicing Identity: Cultural Appropriation and Indigenous Issues. Professor Borrows will introduce his new co-edited book discussing cultural appropriation in the contexts of researching, writing, and teaching about Indigenous peoples. The call for respectful relationships guiding by Indigenous laws through community partnerships will be explored.

Professor John Borrows is the inaugural chairholder of the newly established Loveland Chair in Indigenous Law at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Law. As Canada's foremost scholar working in the area of Indigenous and Aboriginal Law, John has received numerous accolades for his work, including several book awards, honorary degrees (including one at U of T in 2019), an appointment as an Officer of the Order of Canada (2020), the Killam Prize (2017), the Molson Prize (2019), and most recently the Canadian Bar Association's President's Medal (2021), in recognition of his trailblazing working in the field of Indigenous Law. John is a member of the Chippewa of the Nawash First Nation in Ontario, Canada.

The IIO would like to thank the LFO for its contribution and support for this initiative. Space is limited, please register in advance.
