McMaster Global Citizenship Conference


Come join us at Power in the Fringes: McMaster’s Global Citizenship Conference!

When: Saturday, March 15, 2014

Where: Hamilton Hall, McMaster University

This year, McMaster’s Global Citizenship Conference will emphasize marginalized narratives and the power of the untold story. We want to recognize those at the fringes of society, the marginalized populations who interact with the forefront of social justice work. We want open up space in the university for these fringe narratives, alternative stories and traditionally silenced perspectives to inform our daily work and create environments where those with lived experience can influence all personal social justice processes.

By bringing together a multitude of perspectives in workshops, panels, lectures, open discussion, storytelling, theatre and art the Global Citizenship Conference hopes to foster a greater sense of understanding and empathy among delegates to influence the ways in which they interact with the world. We hope to inspire delegates from different backgrounds to create holistic systems change -starting from the individual and radiating outwards.

Panel topics include cultural appropriation, feminism, experiential education, mental health, and the myth of multiculturalism.
