Canoes floating in the water at Temagami.All are invited to this unique and wonderful Trent University/Temagami event.

The 45th Annual Trent Temagami Colloquium – September 21-24, 2017 – Camp Wanapitei, Temagami, Ontario.

A Note from Professor Stephen Hill:

"This annual event is sponsored by several academic programs at Trent and the Bruce and Carol Hodgins Fund. It seeks to examine and experience our understanding of the land with a focus on the study of Canadian, environmental, and Indigenous issues. This unique event celebrates interdisciplinary, experiential learning.

We travel to Wanapitei for the beauty and remoteness of its location. The Temagami country is rich in history and home to generations of Teme-Augama-Anishnabai.

Each day, faculty and students will organize into small groups for guided hiking and canoe trips in the immediate region. Expeditions will be tailored to suit the skill level of participants. Instruction in canoeing will be offered to those indicating an interest. Each group will pack a lunch and eat on the land. Late afternoon and evening programs will include lectures, films, readings, square dancing, and informal discussion.

Each year, we invite a number of people to share papers and presentations related to the colloquium themes around the land. If you are interested in presenting your work and research, please contact Prof. Stephen Hill,, and check out the website This year’s program is shaping up to be the best ever!"
