ACAM Dialogues

2018-2019 ACAM Dialogue Series

Exploring Mental Health in Asian Canadian Student Communities is a series of dialogues that emerges in response to expressed student interest around discussions of mental health and wellbeing that account for experiences at the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, class, and/or disability, along with the role of community in collective learning. The series will feature student-centred peer discussions on mental health and wellness literacy, with the aim of building space for collective analysis and sustainable community-building at UBC.

Extending the Conversation on Sexual Violence in Asian Communities on Campus and Beyond is a series of dialogues initiated by UBC Asian Canadian and Asian Migration Studies and supported by the UBC Equity Enhancement Fund. These dialogues examine the intersections of race, gender, and violence, especially as they impact Asian student communities and open up spaces for students to share experiences and resources, build analyses, and discuss strategies of organizing against sexual and other forms of violence. The series will culminate in a public symposium in Spring 2017 to bring these conversations to a wider audience at UBC and beyond.
