Tune in Jan. 1st 8 – 9pm for a radio documentary entitled Hearts of Darkness – An investigation of hearts & the colonial project. This documentary takes us back to the turn of the century when settlers were establishing Canada and Superintendent of Indian Affairs and Confederation poet, Duncan Campbell Scott was being paddled upstream to sign treaties and was penning that poetry that help define “civilized” and “savage”. Across the Atlantic, Joseph Conrad was making similar treks up the Congo River and writing Heart of Darkness. Produced by Radio CKUT’s Courtney Kirkby and Coel Kirkby.
