"Where are you from?": The Complexity of Racialization and Belonging in So-called Canada

Apr 28, 2021
|
6:00pm–8:00pm
Symposium
Details

As many racialized graduate students have shared with us, and as we too know, the question, “Where are you from?” is a question that permeates myriad experiences of racialization. For many of us, the question of where we are from never yields a simple answer, even if the expectation is that we answer simply in one-word or in a single sentence. Our panel seeks to open dialogue focusing on the impact of this question on communities who experience racialization in various ways. Panelists will share their insight on the impact of meanings of belonging and home, and will include individuals who work in the fields of immigration and multi-racial research and advocacy, including academics, activists, and community workers.
