WHAT: What does it mean to be a global citizen?
WHEN: Friday, January 10, 7-8:30pm
WHERE: Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art, 421 Cawston Ave.
Undergraduate students from UBC’s Okanagan campus will present the primary findings of a collaborative research project analyzing the events associated with Global Citizen Kelowna’s “Global Citizen Week.” How is the Global South represented in these events? Who can be a global citizen?
Discussion of the research report, as well as the larger issue of global citizenship, will be facilitated by David Jefferess.
The AlterKnowledge discussion series brings together faculty and/or students affiliated with the Cultural Studies Program at UBC’s Okanagan campus and members of the Kelowna community to foster discussions about topics related to Culture, Power, and Identity. The series is organized by Allison Hargreaves and David Jefferess, and is held at the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art, downtown Kelowna in the RCA, 421 Cawston Ave.
