Speakers: Luis Sotelo Castro and Leila Qashu
In collaboration with The Centre for Services in Restorative Justice
A discussion on the intersections between oral history and restorative justice led by Leila Qashu.
Luis C. Sotelo Castro is a dual national Colombian/British artist-researcher. His practice is performance-based. He creates live environments of memory in collaboration with other artists and participants from specific communities and locations. He also explores how participatory oral history performance might facilitate listening. He is Canada Research Chair in Oral History Performance and Associate Professor in the Department of Theatre at Concordia University.
Leila Qashu has recently received her PhD in ethnomusicology from Memorial University of Newfoundland. She is an incoming Banting postdoctoral fellow who will be based at COHDS for the next two years. Her dissertation, entitled “Towards an Understanding of Justice, Belief and Women's Rights: Ateetee, an Arsi Oromo women's musical dispute resolution process in Ethiopia," examines how Arsi Oromo (Ethiopian) women use expressive arts not only to protect, promote, and assert their rights and to achieve justice in a rapidly changing society.
