What to Say When: A workshop on Responding to Hate
Conrad Grebel is pleased to offer an enrichment day for high school students grades 10 - 12.
International criminal prosecution is seen by some as an essential tool to end impunity and reduce the extraordinary impact that war crimes and crimes against humanity have on civilians who are trapped in war. Others criticize international prosecution as simply another form of Westerners attempting to impose their view of justice on a skeptical world while ignoring and silencing the voices of the victims and the communities from which they come.
Come and see what Grebel and University of Waterloo have to offer! This open house is for students looking to attend UWaterloo in Fall 2018 or beyond!
At Conrad Grebel, from 10:00am – 5:00pm we will be available to answer your questions, take you on a tour and show you what our residence and/or academic programs have to offer! Plan to stay for lunch – we will be offering a special $5 all-you-can-eat meal ticket for prospective students and their families. We are also offering free parking - start and/or end your day with us here at Grebel!
Enjoy an evening of piano and violin music with renowned Austrian musicians Elena Denisova and Alexei Kornienko. Reception to follow.
Grebel Alumni are invited to join alumni from the other colleges "Across the Creek" to watch the Raptors take on the Atlanta Hawks at the Air Canada Centre.
Game time is 7:00 p.m. Reception begins at 5:30 at the Real Sports Bar across the street from the Air Canada Centre.
Join us for a panel discussion with Dr. David Weaver-Zercher, Sherri Klassen, Katie Steckly, Sam Steiner, Johnny Wideman, and moderator Dr. Marlene Epp
The panel, “Mennonites and the Media: Telling Mennonite Stories Today,” will grapple with the following questions:
- What is it like to be a creator of Mennonite media content today?
- What are the challenges of telling Mennonite stories?
- Who gets to tell Mennonite stories?
- How do we respond when the “non-Mennonite media” gets it “wrong”?
David Weaver-Zercher is the guest lecturer for the 2017-18 Bechtel Lectures in Anabaptist-Mennonite Studies.
Conrad Grebel University College’s Peace and Conflict Studies program (PACS) at the University of Waterloo was the first peace studies program in Canada, and has remained a leader in peace education for 40 years. With PACS’ innovative approach to learning, students can choose arts-based assignment options in many courses.
Celebrate PACS 40th anniversary with us by experiencing some of the most compelling arts-based assignments completed by students in the program. This artwork highlights the diverse, innovative, and transformational nature of the PACS program and PACS students.
War monuments, cenotaphs and honour rolls remind us daily of the most dramatic and familiar stories of war. This exhibit tells war stories of a different kind, and lays out an alternative memorial landscape—the landscape of nonresistance.
These stories are gleaned from letters, diaries, newspapers, photographs, government documents and family histories found in the Mennonite Archives of Ontario. Together, they paint a picture of the Great War from a “peace church” perspective.
