Nous sommes honorés d’accueillir Dr. Janelle Joseph de l’Université de Toronto, pour une conférence, vendredi le 27 septembre à 14h, au LMX 390, afin d’examiner les expériences des migrants sportifs

Cette étude de cas de joueurs de cricket de couleur à Toronto, au Canada, clarifie la façon dont les joueurs tentent de préserver et de protéger leur culture distinctive, ainsi que la manière dont la discrimination à laquelle ils sont confrontés unit leurs communautés.

Nous encourageons votre présence et votre participation – café et collations légères seront fournis. Les personnes intéressées peuvent se réunir pour une sortie informelle après la conférence.
