Abstract only
Log-in for full text

In this chapter, the authors discuss the process leading up to the metissage performance, describe the effect it had on the audience, and reflect on lessons they learned along the way. It provides background information on University of Victoria's (UVic's) Diversity Research Forum. The chapter demonstrates the intersecting elements of the diversity debate, sets the stage for why metissage, a method that showcases intersecting narratives, was an appropriate method to choose for this context. It describes how the authors employed metissage in the context of the Diversity Research Forum: the authors' creation process and a discussion of the quality of conversation resulted from the performance. The purpose of Provost's Diversity Research Forum is to provide a space for faculty, staff and students to showcase their work on issues related to diversity in its various manifestations.
