University of Waterloo's Global Engagement Seminar Program is pleased to invite you to the Global Populism and Democratic Futures Summit on March 28 & March 29.
The aim of the Summit is to showcase projects developed by the Global Engagement Seminar Program’s students, as well as to engage the broader community in important conversations about the global rise of populist movements.
The Global Engagement Program brings together a select group of students from across the six university faculties in order to engage with pressing global challenges. The program Director, Dr. Jasmin Habib, and this year’s Jarislowky Fellow, Dr. Henry Giroux, are encouraging students to think critically about the global challenges posed by populism and the implications for different communities’ futures.
Along with keynote presentations by Henry Giroux, Kurt Huebner, Ann Komaromi and possibly others, the Global Engagement Seminar students will showcase their exhibits and deliver presentations on such topics as Social Media and Civic Engagement, the rise of and response to Anti-Science Movements, Cultural Belonging in the Wake of Populism, and Mainstreaming and Populist Feminisms.
These projects aim to contribute towards the development of meaningful responses and solutions to these timely global issues.
