  • Micro-aggressions co-work
    July 7, 2020: 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

    Info

    Hi Astro Community, With mind to continue the important work started during June 10th #StrikeForBlackLives, some of us CITAzens will be leading a co-working space on racial micro-aggressions at 12:30 on Tuesday July 7 via Zoom. The term “micro-aggression” was coined in the 1970s by Dr. Chester Pierce, an African-American professor of education and psychiatry at Harvard. Dr. Monnica Williams describes the features and impact of a micro-aggression: “The hallmark features of microaggressions are that they reinforce pathological stereotypes or promote exclusion, and they are frustratingly easy to explain away as accidental, well-intentioned, and ostensibly not due to race (Williams, 2019). When microaggressions occur, victims, observers, and allies alike are often unsure how to respond, as denial and hostility are common reactions to being called out." Essentially, if you have been in a situation where you’ve had a thoughtless comment related to race directed to you, you have heard a comment you perceived as harmful, or you have walked away from a conversation and realized your own words could have been harmful, this cowork space is for you! The co-work space will run for an hour, roughly following the schedule below: 12:30 - 12:45 Open discussion on racial microaggressions we have seen/experienced/been involved in 12:45 - 13:00 Review current list of resources and add new materials 13:00 - 13:30 Develop scripted responses to microaggression examples collated, and discuss systemic ways we can work to chip away at the problem! Feel free to anonymously add your experiences to this google doc, which will serve as a record of our ongoing activities, as well as link to useful resources. Racial Microaggressions Cowork: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kGDtHF0e73ytqt5ndbH5eS5tC-aJZIVxYH8waJQw2so/edit?usp=sharing The Zoom Invite for the meeting is: Topic: Workshopping Responses to Racial Microagressions Time: Jul 7, 2020 12:30 PM America/Toronto Join Zoom Meeting https://utoronto.zoom.us/j/93136323287 Meeting ID: 931 3632 3287 Password: 000529 * Looking forward to seeing many of you in a few weeks!

    Info

    In this profusely-illustrated, non-technical presentation, you will learn how Toronto has become a “centre of the universe” for Astronomical research, education, public outreach, and communication, in parallel with the growth of the city and country. You will meet some of the remarkable people (e.g. Helen Sawyer Hogg), and organizations (e.g. the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada), and facilities (e.g. the Da«vid Dunlap Observatory) which have helped bring us to where we are today. Along the way, you will also appreciate the many ways that astronomy impacts society and culture — in the past, and today.

  • Micro-aggressions co-work
    July 7, 2020: 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

    Info

    Hi Astro Community, With mind to continue the important work started during June 10th #StrikeForBlackLives, some of us CITAzens will be leading a co-working space on racial micro-aggressions at 12:30 on Tuesday July 7 via Zoom. The term “micro-aggression” was coined in the 1970s by Dr. Chester Pierce, an African-American professor of education and psychiatry at Harvard. Dr. Monnica Williams describes the features and impact of a micro-aggression: “The hallmark features of microaggressions are that they reinforce pathological stereotypes or promote exclusion, and they are frustratingly easy to explain away as accidental, well-intentioned, and ostensibly not due to race (Williams, 2019). When microaggressions occur, victims, observers, and allies alike are often unsure how to respond, as denial and hostility are common reactions to being called out." Essentially, if you have been in a situation where you’ve had a thoughtless comment related to race directed to you, you have heard a comment you perceived as harmful, or you have walked away from a conversation and realized your own words could have been harmful, this cowork space is for you! The co-work space will run for an hour, roughly following the schedule below: 12:30 - 12:45 Open discussion on racial microaggressions we have seen/experienced/been involved in 12:45 - 13:00 Review current list of resources and add new materials 13:00 - 13:30 Develop scripted responses to microaggression examples collated, and discuss systemic ways we can work to chip away at the problem! Feel free to anonymously add your experiences to this google doc, which will serve as a record of our ongoing activities, as well as link to useful resources. Racial Microaggressions Cowork: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kGDtHF0e73ytqt5ndbH5eS5tC-aJZIVxYH8waJQw2so/edit?usp=sharing The Zoom Invite for the meeting is: Topic: Workshopping Responses to Racial Microagressions Time: Jul 7, 2020 12:30 PM America/Toronto Join Zoom Meeting https://utoronto.zoom.us/j/93136323287 Meeting ID: 931 3632 3287 Password: 000529 * Looking forward to seeing many of you in a few weeks! We will re-send this email again closer to the date. Emily Tyhurst, Dr. Sarah Gossan, Martine Lokken P.S.

    July 7, 2020: 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

    Info

    In this profusely-illustrated, non-technical presentation, you will learn how Toronto has become a “centre of the universe” for Astronomical research, education, public outreach, and communication, in parallel with the growth of the city and country. You will meet some of the remarkable people (e.g. Helen Sawyer Hogg), and organizations (e.g. the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada), and facilities (e.g. the Da«vid Dunlap Observatory) which have helped bring us to where we are today. Along the way, you will also appreciate the many ways that astronomy impacts society and culture — in the past, and today.
