Green College Leading Scholars' Series
Bite-sized research presentations by recently appointed UBC Faculty Members across disciplines. Faculty presentations in this ninth and final session by the 2021-23 Leading Scholars Program cohort include:
Matter and Memory
Ayasha Guerin, Assistant Professor, English Language and Literatures
I research Black social life and ecology in New York City’s floodplain and I write about how abolitionist activism on urban waterfronts has been shaped by diasporic relationships and inter-species entanglements. As an artist, I am invested in art practices that are also forms of activism and believe a responsibility of the research profession is to make knowledge accessible through public actions and exhibitions. My second research project is focused on transnational Black feminism and arts activism in Berlin, Germany, where I have ongoing collective work with CCC (Curating through Conflict with Care) and Black Art Action Berlin.
When Journalism Meets Theatre
Ori Tenenboim, Assistant Professor, Journalism, Writing and Media
I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Journalism, Writing and Media. My main areas of interest include digital journalism, political communication and media economics. I investigate how journalists and news organizations blend older and newer norms, behaviours and forms on different platforms, and what elicits user engagement with the news. I also seek to better understand how news organizations can connect with communities to promote shared benefits, such as knowledge gains and increased trust.
Unless otherwise noted, all of our lectures are free to attend and do not require registration.
