Maya Cousineau-Mollen selected as McGill’s Winter 2022 Mellon Writer-in-Residence
EVOQ is proud to announce that our colleague and First Nations and Inuit Community Development Advisor, Maya Cousineau Mollen has been selected as the Winter 2022 Mellon Writer-in-Residence at McGill University. The Writer-in-Residence program, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, brings Indigenous writers to campus to continue their creative work, share their expertise, interact with students and faculty, and increase awareness of Indigenous writing within the campus community and the general public. Last year’s writing residency was granted to Leanne Betasamosake Simpson.
For more information about this program and the authors who have participated, please visit the Indigenous Studies and Community Engagement Initiative (ISCEI) webpage. ISCEI is responsible for implementing the recommendations of the McGill Provost’s Task Force on Indigenous Studies and Indigenous Education. The Task Force was established in response to calls for action by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.
