    UPDATE: We are sorry to announce that this event is postponed. This postponement is a statement of solidarity with the boycott called by the Canadian Association of University Teachers (https://www.caut.ca/latest/2021/04/caut-council-imposes-rare-censure-against-university-toronto-over-azarova-hiring). Please be assured that we remain committed to contributing to anti-racist pedagogy. While we hope that the censure will be short-lived, we respect the wishes of our panelists to honour the censure.

    Envisioning Asian Canadian Futures: Film Studies as Anti-Racist Pedagogy

    A panel discussion about teaching through film in the context of #StopTheHate and transnational anti-racist activism. Speakers will reflect on the distinct pedagogical possibilities of film for the future of teaching against racism in all its forms with specific attention to Asian Canadian Studies. Drawing on examples from their own work, panelists will discuss the politics of race and the potential of emerging visions of anti-racist solidarity enabled through visual studies.
