Martin, Keavy, (author,, editor.). Robinson, Dylan, (author,, editor.). Garneau, David, 1962- Imaginary spaces of conciliation and reconciliation. (Added Author).


"It's about the role that music, film, visual art, and Indigenous cultural practices play in and beyond Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission on Indian Residential Schools. The essays question the ways in which components of the reconciliation, such as apology and witnessing, have social and political effects for residential-schools survivors, intergenerational survivors, and settler publics."-- Provided by publisher.
