BHER Speaker Series

York University’s Borderless Higher Education for Refugees (BHER) Project, Faculty of Education, and Centre for Refugee Studies present a monthly virtual colloquium series on the intersections of refugee education, anti-Black racism, and COVID-19 in Canada and East Africa. Through a series of talks, film, and an open-mic event, experts will consider the unique challenges that the twinned pandemics pose to refugee communities and educators in Canada and/or East Africa; highlight the unique knowledge that refugee communities and the educators who work with them bring to learning in situations of constraint; and offer new lenses to make meaning of our current moment. This colloquium is the first of its kind to feature experts from York University and from institutions that are comprised of or work with refugees in equal measure.
