Wednesday, February 14, 2018

From the retention of birth names after marriage to the permissibility of using a woman’s sexual history in assault trials, women’s right activists and advocacy organizations have long used Canada’s legal system to fight for gender equity. Despite achievements, the experiences of the women trying these landmark cases have often gone unheard: with persistent underrepresentation and gendered-wage gaps persisting across the legal field, there is still much progress to be made towards the way in which professional women are conceptualized and treated in comparison to their male counterparts. In the wake of the #MeToo movement, it is clear now more than ever, that a conversation is needed about how women are treated—both by the law and in the law. On February 14, the Hart House Debates & Dialogue Committee will host Marie Henein, one of Canada’s most successful criminal lawyers, and the former defence counsel to Jian Gomeshi and Michael Bryant, in conversation with Kim Stanton, a Canadian Lawyer at Goldblatt Partners LLP and the former Legal Director of the Women’s Legal Education Fund (LEAF).

Henein Hutchinson LLP, the law firm which she is a partner at has taken on many high-profile cases. Henein earned her Bachelor of Laws degree from Osgoode Hall Law School before receiving her Master of Laws degree from Columbia Law School in 1991. Her most notable cases include her defence of former CBC radio host, Jian Ghomeshi and former hockey agent, David Frost. She has been repeatedly named one of the top 25 most influential Lawyers in Canada, arguing at all levels of court including the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada. Ms. Henein served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Law Commission of Ontario, and co-founded the Court of Appeal’s Appellate Duty Counsel. Henein was the recipient of the Laura Legge Award in 2013 and The Law Society Medal for outstanding service to the administration of justice in 2017. Dr. Kim Stanton (Moderator) | Lawyer, Goldblatt Partners LLP Kim Stanton is a Canadian lawyer, feminist advocate, and the former Legal Director of the Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF). She holds an LLB degree from the University of British Columbia and Doctor of Juridical Science degree from the University of Toronto, has dedicated her adult life to volunteer and professional work in human rights and social justice, including with the United Nations in the Gaza Strip, with the African Women Lawyers Association to address sexual harrassment in Ghana and providing support to a legal team on the Bosnia-Hercegovina genocide case before the International Court of Justice. She has served as an official observer of a truth commission in West Africa, and has published and lectured with respect to her academic work on truth commissions and public inquiries in Canada.

Spiritus Cogitantis, an academic journal examining spirituality and academics, is seeking submissions for its first edition! Please see submission details and submit your work using the following link: https://goo.gl/forms/4r5P29wEtBi4S80P2 Submission deadline: February 26th, 2018. Spiritus Cogitantis seeks to combine the sociocultural spheres of religion, spirituality, and academic practice. In doing so, we challenge the dynamics of the secular classroom, and seek to expand possibilities for holistic learning and meaningful engagement on campuses everywhere. Academic environments that merely tolerate religious difference often create a polarized and fractured student body. Through this journal, we aim to explore the ways that spirituality and academics interact, coexist, and depend on one another. In doing so, we draw from great thinkers, philosophers, educators, and activists who demonstrate the limitless possibilities of revealing spirituality’s role in the lived practice of education and the arts. We are seeking contributions in the form of essays, academic papers, poetry, prose, photography, and visual art from students at the University of Toronto. Submissions may include, but are not limited to, a reflection of the following: 1. How do you integrate spirituality into your academic life? 2. How does your work challenge predominate secular narratives and ideological assumptions of religious/spiritual identities? 3. What does it mean to be spiritual as an academic? What is theory in reflection of spirituality? 4. How can spirituality be celebrated in educational practice, and how does this change a learning environment? 5. Have you been inspired by the work of academics who have studied education, spirituality, religion, or knowledge production? Submission date: February 26th, 2018. Please direct any questions to spiritus.cogitantis@gmail.com.

Since 2006, its performances have explored themes of sexuality, beauty, and the disabled body, impacting thousands through live performance. Sins Invalid is as an entryway into the absurdly taboo topic of sexuality and disability, manifesting a new paradigm of disability justice." For more info on the film please visit: http://www.sinsinvalid.org/film.html About Sins Invalid: Sins Invalid is a performance project that incubates and celebrates artists with disabilities, centralizing artists of color and queer and gender-variant artists as communities who have been historically marginalized. Our performance work explores the themes of sexuality, embodiment and the disabled body. Conceived and led by disabled people of color, we develop and present cutting-edge work where normative paradigms of "normal" and "sexy" are challenged, offering instead a vision of beauty and sexuality inclusive of all individuals and communities. We define disability broadly to include people with physical impairments, people who belong to a sensory minority, people with emotional disabilities, people with cognitive challenges, and those with chronic/severe illness. We understand the experience of disability to occur within any and all walks of life, with deeply felt connections to all communities impacted by the medicalization of their bodies, including trans, gender variant and intersex people, and others whose bodies do not conform to our culture(s)' notions of "normal" or "functional."

We are very happy to invite all of the Sociology students to our Winter Career seminar! This is a wonderful opportunity for you to speak with professionals whose academic background includes sociology. Professional paths and personal experiences in social work and academia will be discussed by our panel through a Q&A format. There will also be time for you to network with our speakers in the last half-hour. Our speakers include: Julie Jo (HBA, MPP), Policy Advisor, Ontario Treasury Board Secretariat. Julie Jo is a proud U of T graduate of Specialist in Sociology program. After a number of research experiences, meaningful friendships, and lifechanging mentors in Sociology department, she developed strong skill-sets and competencies necessary for her dream to pursue graduate studies at U of T's Master of Public Policy (MPP) program, marrying her interests in social issues and policy development and decision making to address those issues, namely inside the government. Shortly after graduating from MPP, with a great interest in immigration policy and public administration, she has been working in the Ontario Public Service, first at the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration, and currently at the Treasury Board Secretariat. She hopes to instill hope, curiosity and pride in future sociologists and have the audience an open-mind about another way to use sociology knowledge beyond (not too far) academia or classroom. Josh Rosenblum (HBA, MA), Senior Research Director, Synqrinus Inc. Josh Rosenblum is the senior research director for Synqrinus Inc, which he joined three years ago after long stints with Kantar at TNS and Millward Brown. As a research professional with a decade of agency experience, Josh’s insights have been used in award winning industry submissions to the Cassies (in 2009) and MRIA (in 2013). As a younger man, his passion for sociology led Josh to graduate on the Dean’s List at U of T (B.A. 2006), and then get his Master of Arts from McGill (2007). Outside work, Josh is: an avid traveler, dedicated volunteer, and proud fan of ‘80s music. Liana Baciu (HBA), Scrum Master, Investors Group. After spending 6 years on her PSY specialist and SOC major at U of T, Liana did not to find full time employment for 2 years. During this period she switched careers twice, faced her mental health challenges and got a full time job in a field in which she had absolutely no interest - IT. Today Liana is a scrum master at an HR software start-up. The skills and knowledge developed during her degree, including curiosity and perseverance, have allowed her to find her way to a niche that is not only fulfilling but also lucrative. Light refreshment will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there!
