Bridging Knowledge Webinar: Local Contexts

Students are invited to join the Bridging Knowledge scholars for the sixth in a series of 12 supplemental curriculum webinars. Local Contexts is a global initiative that supports Indigenous communities with tools that can reassert cultural authority in heritage collections and data. By focusing on Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property and Indigenous Data Sovereignty, Local Contexts helps Indigenous communities repatriate knowledge and gain control over how data is collected, managed, displayed, accessed, and used in the future.

The recording will be posted here when it is available, as well as on the iSchool’s Bridging Knowledge YouTube playlist, and the Sustainable Heritage Network’s website.
