Each year the The Canada Council’s Killam Prize recognizes distinguished career achievement in five disciplines: the Humanities, Social Sciences, Engineering, Natural Sciences and Health Sciences. Five prizes of $100,000 are awarded each year. IFOA is thrilled to have Constance Backhouse talking about sexual assault and the law, Keren Rice discussing the resurgence of interest in recent months and years in native languages and Ronald Wright discussing his Massey Lecture on progress. This event is moderated by Joseph Kertes and hosted by Dale Smith.
Constance Backhouse and Ronald Wright will sign books in the Festival Hub following their event.
