Should We All Sound White? A Conversation about Accent Discrimination in Higher Education

Description: This session aims to spark a conversation on the heated issue of accent discrimination in higher education. Join us to discover a few findings from a Queen’s report on perceptions of accent and authority among instructors and discuss what accent is and whether it matters in communication in higher education. Have stories to share? We will make space to listen to your experiences and think together about how we can raise awareness of this issue in our community.

Study Abroad: Culture, Self-Discovery, and Identity Stories

Description: The opportunity of studying abroad appeals to many students at Queen’s. Immersing yourself in a new academic, cultural, and often a new linguistic environment is a chance for immense growth of personal and academic nature. This growth also affects our identities- we enter our host cultures with pre-established identities and during our time abroad we may experience changes affecting us in many ways. Do we come back the same person we once were? In this panel, we will discover stories of students who went on an exchange and learn how this experience shaped them.
