12th Annual Social Work Research Symposium

Due to wars, violence or persecution, people are fleeing their countries around the world.

On top of that, they have to face xenophobic ideologies in some stances.

To address this issue, York University, School Of Social Work, is organizing its 12 annual social work research symposium.

This year’s theme is Securing Our Political Futures: Critical Social Work And Social Science Conversations On Xenophobic Nationalisms.

The following topics will be covered:

  • Critical social work and broader social science responses to the resurgence of xenophobic nationalisms

  • Xenophobia in laws, policies, and discourses

  • Impact on racialized immigrants, refugees, and indigenous populations

  • Diverse creative and resurgent imaginaries (e.g social, political epistemological) and movements challenging xenophobia

  • Envisioning emancipatory futures from within the corpus of critical theory

  • Lessons from cross-disciplinary dialogues and conversations

Date: Friday, 26th April, 2019

Time: 8:30 a.m to 4:00 p.m
