Join VIU’s 2019 Fulbright Visiting Research Chair in Aboriginal Studies, Dr. Cynthia-Lou Coleman, in an afternoon presentation exploring how science has led to stereotypes of Indigenous peoples. Hear how early studies of the brain and mind treated first peoples as objects of study who were considered primitive and uncivilized. Although modern scientists reject "race science," assumptions about Indigenous peoples' intellect and personality persist in mass media today.
