Symposium to explore the historical context of slurs

A three-day virtual symposium at the centre of UWindsor Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Decolonization (EDID) Week promises to be a beacon of enlightenment and collaboration, says Marium Tolson-Murtty, director of Anti-Racism Organizational Change.

The Symposium on Slurs will bring together campus EDID champions, professors, and scholars to explore the historical context of slurs as they pertain to substance use, academic freedom, intersectional gender x race, 2SLGBTQIA+ issues, ableism, mental health, indigeneity, and racism.

“It will spotlight the dedication of campus and local partners united in their commitment to advancing equity through community and collaboration,” Tolson-Murtty says. “A compelling lineup of insightful discussions, Q&A sessions, and networking opportunities will further illuminate the path toward a more inclusive community through courageous and open dialogue.”

The symposium will run March 19 to 21. Find the complete schedule of activities on the EDID Week website.
