Cultural Translation: Negotiated Third Spaces and Those Who Live There @ CGR
Oct 18 – Dec 20 all-day

Soheila Esfahani

This exhibition features the work of artist and cultural translator Soheila Esfahani. As an Iranian Canadian, Soheila has lived in what she calls a “negotiated third space” and her artwork emerges from her reflections on this experience.

Third spaces are the social and linguistic platforms which emerge out of necessity when cultures collide, and are key for the translation of culture. The work that is done in these spaces is a service to Canadian society, and often goes unnoticed. Through this exhibit, community members are invited to observe, reflect on, and celebrate moments of cultural translation.

The exhibit consists of two installations on this theme. Most of the art included in this exhibit takes the form of of blue and white porcelain, which has been claimed by various cultures and nationalities over time, adding to the poetic complexity of these works of cultural translation.

Launch reception: Tuesday, October 23 at 4:30 PM in the Grebel Gallery. Register here.

Over the last three years various international agreements have highlighted the need for greater coordination along the food chain and increased food justice in creating urban food security. These international agreements have set the stage for new urban food policy to emerge. At this panel discussion, food system experts from Wilfrid Laurier University, Carleton University, and the City of Toronto will explore how we can use the New Urban Agenda and other international agreements (SDGs and the Milan Urban Food Policy Pact) as levers for changing the food system.
A light breakfast will be served.
Registration is required.
Panel moderated by:
Dr. Alison Blay-Palmer, Director of the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems and Associate Professor in Geography and Environmental Studies at Wilfrid Laurier University
With panelists:
Dr. Patricia Ballamingie, Associate Professor in Environmental Studies and Human Geography at Carleton University
Barbara Emanuel, Manager Toronto Food Strategy, Toronto Public Health
Dr. Theresa Schumilas, Postdoctoral Fellow in Geography and Environmental Science at Wilfrid Laurier University

Stand Up To Protect Our Healthcare @ Meet at Unifor Hall
Oct 23 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Waterloo Region Health Coalition | Protecting public health care for all Dear Activists, Allies and Supporters of Public Health Care,

We need your support.

As you may know the Ontario Health Coalition is holding a Rally at Queen’s Park on October 23rd to “Stand Up” for our public Health Care system.

The cuts to OHIP + and mental health funding in Ontario have already started. We cannot let the government create a budget crisis & then cut and privatize our hospitals, long-term care, home care, our mental health & other vital health care.

Join us. It matters. We can protect public health care if we take a stand. Here in Waterloo Region we are joining the Rally, along with concerned people from all over Ontario, as we all send a powerful message to Mr. Ford!

  • Bus transport is being provided (no charge)
  • Buses will depart on October 23rd at 9:00 AM from the UNIFOR Hall, 600 Wabanaki Drive, Kitchener (returning 3:00-4:00 PM) Map
  • Free bagged lunches will be provided

Contact us at: waterlooregionhealthcoalition@gmail.com to reserve a spot on a bus and help us defend our cherished system from the real threat of more cuts and more privatization. It seems to me that Mr.Ford is also interested in cutting other public systems such as education and social assistance, we have seen his policy on the carbon tax!

Our voices will be stronger when united. Lets work together now and in the future.

If you could please ask people in your groups to get on that bus with us we would be very grateful.

Thank you for considering joining our protest. We can reserve seats for your activists until next Wednesday October 17th.

Sincerely,

Jim Stewart, Co-Chair Waterloo Region Health Coalition

What Can We Learn from the South American GPE? Puzzles of Global Insertions, Inequalities and Political Instability
Oct 24 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

The point of this presentation is to examine how there is a growing Global Political Economy (GPE) of South America that is reconceptualizing the framework of the regional IPE traditions in the light of current global shifts, conflicts and developments. A framework that, however, cannot be confined to the limitations of North American and European IPE approaches. The work will be presented in three parts: First, it outlines the major international and regional IPE perspectives concerning the academic understanding of Latin American political economy. Secondly, it will explore the central components of the concept of Latin America, as an iron cage, to contrast this with the historical evidence that the regional configurations of development have provided. Finally, to conclude, it will consider some key points for a Global South American Political Economy, based on the research lines and agendas growing in the region.
About the speaker
Ernesto Vivares PhD, University of Sheffield, UK, Professor of IPE in the Department of International Studies, FLACSO Ecuador. He is currently a visiting scholar in the Balsillie School of International Affairs and the Department of Political Science at the University of Waterloo.

There is a peculiar relationship between Germany (and other European countries) and the First Nations people of North America. It all goes back to the writings of Karl May, a 19th-century author who created one of the most popular characters in German literature, Winnetou. While visiting Germany on numerous occasions to give lectures, Mr. Taylor was confronted by the legacy of these real and imaginary people. And as a First Nations man, it made an impression on him. On a trip last year, he took a film crew and documented this phenomenon. This is the result.
This is a free event, but please register by ordering a ticket.
This event is co-sponsored by the Waterloo Centre for German Studies and the Balsillie School of International Affairs Research Cluster for Indigenous Peoples, Decolonization and the Globe.

Canada’s Natural Resources: Let’s Not Abandon Our Strengths
Oct 25 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

It has become difficult to initiate natural resource extraction projects in Canada. Construction-aggregate mining in southern Ontario has been subject to unpredictable and cost-prohibitive regulation, as are major pipelines in western Canada. Natural gas development is prohibited in eastern Canada because of fear of fracking; fracked gas is thus imported from Pennsylvania. The cost to our economy is significant in terms of foregone tax revenue and lost opportunities for rural Canadians, who might not aspire to urban life, and for the country’s professional engineering and geoscientific communities, which are “high tech” players internationally.
About the speakers
Maurice Dusseault is a Professor, Engineering Geology at the University of Waterloo and a registered professional engineer in Alberta and Ontario. He frequently works with governments and industry as an advisor and instructor. He carries out research in petroleum geomechanics (drilling, hydraulic fracturing, reservoir geomechanics), and is a world expert on new production methods, deep waste sequestration in sedimentary basins, and reservoir geomechanics.
Richard Jackson is a Fellow at Geofirma Engineering and Adjunct Professor, Earth & Environmental Sciences at the University of Waterloo.

China in Africa: A Model for Africans or a New Colonialism?
Oct 26 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

There have been contacts between China and African states that extended over centuries. During the Cold War, China played a role supporting anti-colonial/anti-apartheid struggles across the continent. Since 1978, China has undergone a rapid process of modernization that catapulted the country into a leading role in international trade, investment, political influence, and even as a growing military power.
Nelson Mandela’s role in South African relations is of special interest, and his views on the People’s Republic of China are noteworthy.
As China’s role in the international system expands, Beijing’s relations with countries of the African continent continue to deepen. Against the context, a distinct but important question is whether or not the Chinese model of development can or even should be applied to African circumstances?
African views, both of governments and peoples vary widely, from a welcome embrace of an alternative to Western powers, particularly former colonial powers, to a resentment of Chinese trade dominance and investment policies.
The variance in views, raises yet another question: whether Sino-African relationship is one of equality or one that is manifested in what some have described as ‘neo-colonial’ policies that seek to extend and cement Chinese dominance of the region? Answers to this question will vary depending within the range of African countries, as well as polling undertaken on this point.
What is clear, however, the profile of China within Africa continues to rise, and there is reason to believe that China will maintain a high-profile, and even an expanded role on the African continent in the 21st century.
