June 5, 2019 – “Disabled People and Subjugated Knowledges: New understandings and strategies developed by people living with chronic conditions”

Time: 9:00–10.30am

Place: 436 Paterson Hall, Carleton University (live videoconference with Liverpool Hope University, UK).

This seminar provides a contribution to our understanding of the knowledges and strategies developed by people living with chronic illnesses, based on an empirical study conducted in England and Portugal. Disability studies has historically (and rightly) focused on mapping out and understanding disablism. The way disabled people relate to their bodyminds has only recently featured in the literature. Adding to this work, Dr Bê argues that disabled people constantly have to negotiate codes about the body, based on normative notions, which she terms normative corporality. The knowledges and strategies developed by disabled people are often unnoticed, or devalued, as we tend to value knowledges of the body that come from established systems of knowledge, or from the bodies our society deems normative. The concern is that the subjugated knowledges of disabled people are in danger of being unacknowledged in futurity.

July, 10, 2019 – CFIHP 2019 Workshop

Attached is the tentative program for the 2019 Canadian Foreign Intelligence History Project workshop which will be held in Ottawa on 10 July.

The program is in two parts. The morning will be spent discussing three papers related to foreign intelligence in Canada. There will also be an opportunity for participants to provide an update on their current or planned research activities.

The afternoon will focus on the issue of improving access to historical records. We anticipate that representatives of a number of government agencies will be able to participate in this discussion, including the Office of the Information Commissioner, the LAC ATI team, the Public Safety “Transparency Initiative” and “Declassification Project,” the Secretariat of the National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians and the Treasury Board “Open Canada” initiative. Once we have worked out the details of their participation a revised workshop program will be circulated.

To register for the workshop please contact me at

and mention your institutional affiliation. The workshop venue provides a good setting for an active discussion, but space is limited. Priority will be given to researchers currently working in this field but we should have room for others who are interested in the subject of foreign intelligence in Canada.

The deadline for registration is 15 June. Information on the aim and research focus of the CFIHP can be found at:

Call for Proposals

Conference organized and hosted by the Centre for Media and Culture in Education, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto

November 1-3, 2019, Toronto

The Centre for Media and Culture in Education (CMCE) at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto is pleased to announce a call for proposals for participation in a conference dedicated to violence prevention in higher education. The intertwined issues of sexual, racial and (trans)gender-based forms of violence are urgent issues locally and globally, calling for knowledge exchanges, research, and actions exploring the relational, intersectional, interdisciplinary,  and globalized aspects of these phenomena.

This call for proposals invites explorations of the limitations and possibilities of violence prevention. By possibilities, we mean both practiced and yet to be imagined prevention approaches that stop sexed, (trans)gendered, and raced violence on college and university campuses worldwide. What can we learn from these successful practices? Are they transferable, expendable, and sustainable? By limitations, we mean those local and global social, cultural, political, educational and institutional factors that inhibit, curb, or counter violence prevention initiatives rendering its aims unattainable. What are such inhibiting forces or structures? How can we overcome them?

The deadline to submit a proposal is June 10th, 2019 by midnight EST.
