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

Following discussions with the panelists, we have all agreed to postpone the upcoming event, Envisioning Asian Canadian Futures: Film Studies as Anti-Racist Pedagogy. This event, which was to take place on Tuesday, May 18, promised to facilitate a very important discussion on timely topics for our community, province and country as a whole. Given the disturbing rise in anti-Asian racism across North America over the past year, we recognize how critical it is to shine a light on this topic. As such, we’re looking forward to rescheduling the event at a later date.

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.
