Upcoming Events

October 23rd, 2020: Remembering Blackness and anti-Blackness at Queen's (a Queen's Reads Teach In)

In this Queen's Reads event, we will be taking steps towards disrupting the anti-Black racism in our community by questioning how we remember the history of Blackness and anti-Blackness at Queen's. Questions we will explore together include: Why is it important to be critical of how we remember institutions or people? Why is it important to draw attention to forgotten histories? How has Queen’s University’s history impacted the anti-Black racism in our present day? The Student Experience Office and Queen's Reads is honoured to feature the following speakers at this Teach In.

Edward Thomas (PhD Candidate, Cultural Studies)

Bunisha Samuels (Robert Sutherland Award Recipient, 2020)

Celia Romulus (PhD Candidate, Political Studies)

And a scene study from Other Side of the Game by Amanda Parris performed by YIKES a Theatre Company at Queen's.
