What is social justice? Where is it needed? How do we achieve it?
The Hart House Social Justice Committee invites you to a networking breakfast on February 25, 2004 from 9 to 11 a.m:
The objective of the breakfast is to bring together students and representatives of on-campus organizations, discuss the meaning of social justice, and provide ideas on practical ways of achieving it. The key speaker for the event will be Dr. Leslie Jermyn, an anthropologist by training, a teacher by nature and a writer by design. She combines some of these interests as a university lecturer and has taught for the University of Toronto, Trent University, American College (Singapore) and the University of Pittsburgh (Semester at Sea). She also researches and writes about global issues such as the environmental and human consequences of the shrimp industry, oil consumption and modern slavery. She has published in the UK, Canada, Germany and the USA.
Currently, she is working on a book about global problems that will combine academic research and accountability with popular appeal. The book stems from student responses to her university courses and will explain contemporary global problems as well as offer concrete actions for change at the individual and community level. She is a founding member and the current president of GlobalAware Independent Media Organisation.
