COVID-19 VULNERABILITIES: ASIAN RACIALIZATION, COALITION AND CREATIVITY

17 SEP 2020, 5-6:30 pm (PDT)

Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies
This virtual roundtable conversation explored Asian racialization and the multiple meanings of “vulnerability” in the unfolding global pandemic. The roundtable considered how COVID-19 amplifies the precarity of particular communities, and how creativity, art, and interdependence in mutual aid might address such inequities. Our panel of scholars, artists, and community organizers situated this global crisis within histories that connect Vancouver, and Canada more broadly, to Asia, and discussed possible anti-racist practices and policies. 

This event was hosted by the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies and supported by the Interdisciplinary Histories Research Cluster. More info can be found here

BELONGING AT THE TABLE: Transforming Intangible Cultural Heritage to Reflect Who, Where and When We Are in Canada

Primary Investigator: Dr. Henry Yu (Department of History)
“Belonging at the Table: Transforming Intangible Cultural Heritage to Reflect Who, Where and When We Are in Canada" is  an interdisciplinary project for a SSHRC Partnership Grant application that is led by Dr. Henry Yu, Department of History. This project will offer new tools, partnerships, and methods to support the decolonization of heritage practices. The end goal is an expanded capacity for community-engaged, collaborative practices that ethically steward the long ignored, marginalized, and racially excluded elements of our shared cultural heritage. 

The Interdisciplinary Histories Research Cluster is pleased to provide support as matching funds for a SSHRC Connection grant application for the following conference:

Interactions, Exchanges, and Transformations: European Legal Traditions and their impact on the Construction of Gender in a Global Context 

UBC, West Point Grey, Vancouver

21 to 23 October 2021

This international conference will explore the interactions between varied European legal cultures and their global impact. Such interactions can be seen within Europe itself as various legal traditions interacted, influenced, and displaced each other, but can also be discerned beyond Europe, as these legal cultures were exported around the world. It represents the first meeting outside of Europe of the Gender Differences in European Legal Cultures international research network. This network is the premier European academic organization dedicated to fostering research and knowledge exchange on the histories of law and gender across European cultures and traditions. Founded in 2000, it brings together scholars from around the world researching the historical trajectories and imbrications of gender and law across European legal systems, from the ancient to the contemporary world.

This conference was organized jointly by professors from the University of British Columbia (John Christopoulos and Katherine Huemoller), Simon Fraser University (Evdoxios Doxiades), and the University of Northern British Columbia (Dana Wessell-Lightfoot), and will bring together approximately fifty international speakers, including senior and junior scholars and graduate students.
