Worlds at Home: On Cosmopolitan Futures – “Reading Worlds at Home”

“Reading Worlds at Home”

Featuring readings by Shani Mootoo, Lydia Kwa, and Larissa Lai and a discussion of the film All Our Father’s Relations  by Elder Larry Grant and Sarah Ling.

The event was part of “Worlds at Home: On Cosmopolitan Futures,” a public symposium bringing together scholars from across Canada, the US and Australia to consider the future of cosmopolitanism as a critical approach to scholarship and praxis. The symposium took place on UBC’s Vancouver campus from March 16-17, 2017 and featured an interview with Dr. Sneja Gunew (UBC) and a launch of her book, Post-multicultural Writers as Neo-cosmopolitan Mediators (Anthem Press) as well as a keynote address by Dr. Pheng Cheah (UC Berkeley) and more.
