Organized for students – by students
In order to create a safe place to discuss these sensitive and complex topics, the link for the Zoom meeting will be posted on Canvas for students at the UvA. See the Facebook event for more information: https://www.facebook.com/events/2687282381515624/?active_tab=about
The UvA’s Anthropology Program Committee would like to wholeheartedly invite Anthropology students to our Time to Talk event. At this event, three wonderful Anthropology lecturers will reflect on the Black Lives Matter protests. After the presentations by prof. dr. Amade M’Charek, dr. Julie McBrien and dr. Francio Guadeloupe, there is time for a Q&A to further discuss these topics. We wish not to stay quiet or distance ourselves from these topics, but instead we wish to collectively explore what and how anthropological education can contribute to such societal issues. This is not a one-off initiative, as lasting improvements require long-term investments and continuous critical reflections. Change is vital – this does not end when it stops going viral. Social injustice is an urgent matter and always will be.
Join us on July 3rd, 11:00 – 13:00.
We hope to see and speak to you then!
