BIPOC Graduate Student Workshop

November 14, 2019 at 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM

Location:Departmental Lounge, B742 Loeb Building
Audience:Current Students
Key Contact:Augustine Park

What are the experiences of Black, Indigenous and racialized graduate students? What are the struggles and challenges BIPOC students face? What can the graduate programmes in Sociology and Anthropology do to support BIPOC graduate students?

If you are a graduate student in the MA or PhD programme in Sociology or Anthropology and identify as Black, Indigenous or a person of colour, come out to explore these issues at an upcoming workshop.

Professors Zoe Todd and Rania Tfaily will share their experiences of academia as graduate students and as faculty members. We will also hear from Nadine Powell and Jasmeet Bahia, as current students of colour.

We also want to hear about your experiences and learn from your insights on what our graduate programmes and department can do to better support you.

This event will take place in lieu of the weekly graduate student coffee social on this date. Lunch will be served (if you have any dietary restrictions, please e-mail no later than November 7).
