We would like to invite you to a 2-day symposium "Diverse Spaces:
Examining Identity, Community and Citizenship within Public Culture".
DIVERSE SPACES is a conference aimed at bringing together a diverse range
of academics, community leaders, culture/heritage workers and students to
discuss multiculturalism in Canadian public cultural sites and
institutions. Conference papers draw on interdisciplinary fields to
interrogate the spaces, the structures, the goals, the practices, the
people and the processes of public cultural and heritage spaces on local,
community, national and international scales.
Presenters will investigate the negotiations, relationships,
compromises, conflicts, successes or failures that emerge as new spaces
are established, and as old ones are reconstituted or rethought.
Our Keynote speakers will be
Rinaldo Walcott, PhD, Department of Sociology and Equity Studies in
Education, OISE University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario
Toward the Multicultural Public Good: Race, Caste and the Canadian Public
Mo Dhaliwal, Vancouver International Bhangra Celebration Society,
Vancouver, British Columbia
