Len Findlay

Distinguished Professor Emeritus
University of Saskatchewan

Len Findlay was Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Director of the Humanities Research Unit and founding member of the Indigenous Humanities Group at the University of Saskatchewan, and Past President of Academy One (Arts and Humanities) of the Royal Society of Canada. Trained in nineteenth-century European elite and radical cultural theory and production, his more recent  Canadianist work engages with the Indigenous/settler interface, historically and currently, the distinctiveness and endangerment of the humanities in Canada, and with connections between academic freedom and Canadian politics. He served for almost a decade on the Academic Freedom and Tenure Committee of the Canadian Association of University Teachers, including two terms as Chair.
