On September 9 and 10, academics in Canada are planning to pause their regular teaching and administrative duties to participate in activities and actions to protest racism and police violence. In particular, scholars across Canadian universities are organizing a series of virtual teach-ins.
NUFA would like to host our own virtual teach-in on Thursday September 10th and we are looking for faculty who would like to draw from their teaching and research to participate as panelists or as moderator in a one-hour virtual event on the topics of racism, and police brutality and violence in our communities from both historical and contemporary perspectives.
If you would like to be a panelist or to moderate the event, please contact our Membership Engagement Officer, Natalya Brown ([email protected]) by noon on Monday, September 7th.
