Trojan Horse Aid: A Seminar with Susan Walsh

January 29, 2016 — 

Susan Walsh serves as the Executive Director for USC Canada and has worked in the field of development for over two decades. She will be speaking to the experiences that informed her recently released book from McGill-Queen’s University Press, partly based on her doctoral research at the University of Manitoba.

Trojan-Horse Aid: Seeds of Resistance and Resilience in the Bolivian Highlands and BeyondTrojan Horse Aid: Seeds of Resistance and Resilience in the Bolivian Highlands and Beyond is a compelling first-hand account of development assistance gone awry. It challenges the idea of Western capacity-building, and offers reflections on the relationship between indigenous knowledge and resilience theory, the hopeful future of development assistance, and the contradictions in Walsh’s own hybrid role as researcher and development-practitioner.

When: Tuesday, February 9th | 12:30pm-1:30pm
