Date: May 30 | Time: 09:00am to 10:15am | Location: Classroom - CL 127 Room ID:15776
Speakers: From the Canadian Political Science Association - Joyce Green (University of Regina) and Peter Russell (University of Toronto) | From the Canadian Association of Social Work Education: Billie Allan (University of Victoria) and Carolyn Campbell (Dalhousie University)
A special open session organized by the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences, in collaboration with the Canadian Association for Social Work Education (CASWE) and the Canadian Political Science Association (CPSA). This workshop engages scholarly associations in a conversation among peers on the role that humanities and social science disciplines can play in advancing reconciliation in post-secondary education and in society more broadly. How can associations engage with their membership and across other disciplines to advance the TRC calls to action? What can associations learn from each other and what is the way forward? This session showcases the experiences of CASWE and CPSA in building plans of actions for advancing reconciliation. Participants will be able to engage in critical exchanges, including sharing successes, challenges and ideas for the future to help answer the question “what can associations do?”
This workshop is jointly presented with the Canadian Association of Social Work Education (CASWE) and the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences (FHSS)
