The WCGS Grimm Lecture 2020 “Thinking Itself Is Dangerous: Reading Hannah Arendt Now” by Professor Samantha Rose Hill was scheduled to be held on 19 March 2020. Due to a state of emergency in Ontario to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, the public lecture had to be cancelled in order to protect the health of the community.

The Grimm Lecture was scheduled to be held in the CIGI Auditorium on Thursday, 19 March 2020, and must now be cancelled.
