Gerald McMaster lecture

The Humanities Research presented Gerald McMaster as the Barbara Powell lecture this year. The event start time had a mis-communication on the website so we had to wait a half hour to ensure everyone arrived. In the meantime, Carmen showed some early video she'd unearthed from 1979 when McMaster was teaching here and hosting an early conference on "Indian Art".
His talk chronicled his findings and observations around depictions of white people within First Nations art, both historically and in contemporary art. It was very interesting although not particularly controversial. The lecture was not used for any political ends, it was a straight forward historical and aesthetic appreciation.
