Race and Ethnicity I: Colonial and Racial Violence

| |
Colonial and Racial violence permeate educational institutions, employment, the child welfare system, and the healthcare sector. This session dives into timely case studies demonstrating this form of violence around the world. The devastating and traumatic effects of government policies on racialized and Indigenous bodies are presented through papers which explore the Europeanization of race and racism in the classrooms in Norway; xenophobic fears of competition in employment in South Africa; the impact of the disproportionate number of non-Indigenous workers in the Canadian child welfare system; the intergenerational transmission of trauma dealt by  residential schools in Canada; and the Motherisk hair testing scandal in Toronto’s Sick Kids Hospital.

Race and Ethnicity II: Pardon Me, that’s my seat: Navigating through racialized spaces

| |
This session interrogates the politics of spatial control which maintains racial hierarchies, identities, boundaries, and exclusions within specific geographies. The presenters examine settings policed by city officials, law enforcement, and educators; and highlight the agency of racialized groups who challenge narratives and impose their sense of identity, belonging, and ownership.

Organizers: Jennifer Adkins, University of British Columbia, Jessica Stallone, University of Toronto, Esra Ari, Western University

Race and Ethnicity III: Oh Canada! Immigrants, Refugees and the Politics of Inclusion

| |
Canada has recently celebrated its 150th anniversary - and ideas of Canadian values of multiculturalism and inclusion have been at the forefront of public discourse. This session problematizes the notion that Canada is welcoming and inclusive to all refugees, immigrants, and children of immigrant parents. This session examines the shaping of a distinct middle-class multiculturalism drawn along racialized lines, through Canada’s immigration policy during the post-world war II period. It also explores timely case studies of how black immigrants and refugees are received and perceived today in Canadian society.
