IARG and EAHR encourage all faculty members and students working or taking a class in the Department of Art History at Concordia University to attend our scheduled event Building a Safe(r) Classroom Together, taking place on Wednesday, April 11th, 2018 from 10AM-12 PM (Jarislowsky Institute, EV 3.711). This iteration of the event aims to focus on responding to expressed concerns from students in the department regarding how oppression manifests itself in the classroom, specifically when professors are faced with instances of conflict. The event aims to offer an opportunity for students to voice their concerns in a safer space, in hopes to foster positive problem-solving discussions between students and professors to explore these concerns and build towards a healthier future.
The discussion will be moderated by four Art History students - two from each research groups - in order to facilitate a respectful environment. Refreshments (coffee and tea) will be served. If you have any accessibility request or concern in regards to the way this event will be held please reach out to us at the following email addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. We would be happy to answer your question(s) and to make our event (more) accessible!
This event is co-organized by IARG and EAHR.
IARG is an Indigenous-led group out of Concordia University that works to facilitate fluid spaces of connecting, analyzing, reflecting on, and experiencing the tensions and exhilaration of an ever-changing relationship and balance of power between many nations and cultures. It is our goal to question assumptions and conventions through open discussions that challenge dominant structures. Our focus is threefold: relationships, listening, and Indigenous representation. Realizing that it could become a safer space for exploration for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous experiences, IARG seeks to more directly reflect the needs and concerns of the Indigenous communities and individuals it encounters.
