Decolonization and Justice: An Introductory Overview
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

'Decolonization and Justice: An Introductory Overview' emerged from the undergraduate students’ final assignment in JS-419 on Advanced Seminar in Criminal Justice at the University of Regina's Department of Justice Studies, Canada. This book focused on decolonization of multiple justice-related areas, such as policing, the court system, prison, restorative justice, and the studies of law and criminology. This is quite likely one of the few student-led book projects in Canada covering the range of decolonization topics. Ten student authors explored the concept of decolonization in law, policing, prison, court, mental health, transitional justice and restorative justice. We are grateful to receive funding support from the University of Regina’s OER Publishing Program Small Project Grant, which enabled us to hire a professional copy editor for the book.

Geology 240 – A Virtual Field Trip
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This virtual field trip was born from an acute geological necessity. During the global situation in 2020 we realized how fragile the geologists’ “ecosystem” was. The geologist needs to observe the natural world around himself or herself and his/hers necessities to touch, smell, lick, hammer, analyze the rocks in their normal environment were deeply affected by the lockdowns or by the restrictions imposed on travel and on the interactions with the communities located on the path to the mighty rocks. During the pandemic, the student of geology was stripped of the best part of the undergraduate study: the field trip. The field trip awakens the innate curiosity in the student, while forging long lasting friendships. Also, if each knowledge information would be a piece of a massive puzzle, the field trip helps the scholar in geology put all the puzzle pieces in their place, helping with the understanding of the world surrounding us as a whole.

Family members, scholars and researchers, artists, activists and policy-makers provide their decade-long perspectives, providing testimony and evidence that sexualized and racialized violence is not only a product of historic colonization but continues to manifest in entrenched systems of colonization and global femicide. The analysis and the heart of all the authors is generously shared, exemplifying what resistance looks like.
