The King’s University in Edmonton AB is launching its winter academic semester with a two-day conference inspired by the upcoming 150th anniversary of Canadian confederation in July 2017. “Glorious and Free? Generous Citizenship for the Next 150” takes place Jan. 18-19 and features speakers who will investigate society’s assumptions about citizenship and what it means to “belong” in Canada.

For two days, speakers with expertise in philosophy, social ethics, religion, and journalism will offer their thoughts about the refugee experience, religion and liberal democracy, political advocacy, and the history of immigration in Canada through plenary talks and breakout sessions.
