Cultivating resilience and self-compassion for stress reduction Tickets
Jun 17 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

A Health Education & Promotion and ACMAPS workshop.

Let’s face it, today’s culture values perfection. We may feel pressure towards academic excellence, especially as mature/part-time students where the stakes on achieving academic success are especially high.

As a result, some of us might experience perfectionist tendencies from time to time. These experiences may include fear of failure, disapproval or disappointment in oneself. Despite best efforts, it might make it difficult to cultivate one’s own self-compassion.

Do you need new strategies to increase your resilience and overcome burnout? This workshop will look at the function of stress, how it affects our well-being, and how we can develop realistic strategies to build and implement resilience as mature/part-time students. We will also look at practices for self-compassion and mindfulness tools that support stress-reduction.

Register in advance for this meeting: yorku.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJUqd-iqqjwvE9TNBGvtKPKmP21mPsE64CB-.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Hong Kong-Canada Relationships Tickets
Jun 17 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

This panel will examine the histories and contemporary realities of Hong Kong-Canada relationships. Panelists will discuss what part these diverse connections have or could play in protecting and developing Hong Kong identities, cultures and democratic politics, or, alternatively, how they have or could in future inhibit their flourishing. To what extent and in what ways are Hong Kong-Canada relationships dominated by PRC-Canada relationships? What are the implications of this hierarchy, to the extent that it exists?

Panellists:

Canadians in Hong Kong, Past and Present: Implications for Hong Kong Identities, Cultures and Politics
Susan Henders, Associate Professor, Politics, York University

Professor Henders is currently conducting research on the historical and contemporary nature and significance of Canadian-linked organizations in Hong Kong. Together with Mary M. Young, Henders has advanced the theorization of non-state diplomacies as “other diplomacies” and the empirical understanding of its roles in making Canadian-Asian relationships in co-authored articles in the Hague Journal of Diplomacy and Canadian Foreign Policy Journal. The latter article won the 2012 Maureen Molot Prize for best article. Henders’ single-author articles on Canadian-linked other diplomacies in Hong Kong have been published in Global Society (in press) and the Canadian Foreign Policy Journal. She also publishes on the domestic and international politics of decentralized state architectures in culturally regionalized states. A former Director of the York Centre for Asian Research, Henders received a doctorate degree from the University of Oxford and a master’s degree from the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

The Legacies of Hong Kong Immigrants in Canada’s Migration History
Miu Chung Yan, Professor, School of Social Work, University of British Columbia
Professor Yan studied, practiced and taught social work in Hong Kong, London England, Toronto and San Francisco. His sojourner’s experience has influenced his major research interests covering settlement and integration of immigrants and refugees, critical cross-cultural and antiracist practice, internal dynamics in Chinese community, and globalization and social development. He has recently completed a project on “Immigration, Integration and Social Transformation in the Pacific Rim”, and is the lead author of “Subethnic interpersonal dynamic in diasporic community: a study on Chinese immigrants in Vancouver” (2019) in Asian Ethnicity and co-editor of Working with Immigrants and Refugees: Issues, Theories, and Approaches for Social Work and Human Service Practice (2017).

What to Do When There is Little to be Done
David Zweig, Professor Emeritus, Division of Social Sciences, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST)
Professor Zweig spent 15 years as Director of the Center on China’s Transnational Relations at HKUST. Currently he is Director of Transnational China Consulting Limited and Vice President of the Center on China and Globalization. He is the author or editor of ten books, including Internationalizing China: domestic interests and global linkages (2002) and Sino-U.S. Energy Triangles: Resource Diplomacy under Hegemony (2016). He is currently finishing a book on China’s reverse migration of talent.

Discussant: Lynette Ong, Associate Professor, Political Science, University of Toronto

Moderator: Guida Man, Associate Professor, Sociology, York University

This is the third and final panel in the Hong Kong Beyond Hong Kong Symposium, which inquires how Hong Kong as a “distinct society” culturally, politically and economically could sustain moving forward within geographical Hong Kong and beyond. Invited panel speakers will explore new forms of contentious politics in alternative spaces, new visions and discourses in Hong Kong Studies, and the implication of the Hong Kong experience for Canada and the wider world. The symposium is presented alongside the Fourth Bernard H. K. Luk Memorial Lecture in Hong Kong Studies at York University.

Burma in the Context of Global Uprising against Militarized Violence Roundtable Tickets
Jun 18 @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am

Register at: https://yorku.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_1Plljrc5SWGXBh-gik2LtQ  

In his response to a student in Burma asking for some consideration given the violence happening around them, a York University Math instructor wrote: “people don’t get shot for just protesting, but for a lot deeper reasons.” The reality is that people are randomly murdered by the security forces in Burma, with students and workers being particularly targeted, and people in Canada and the US are regularly murdered by the police for being black or indigenous. This instructor’s ignorance and insensitivity, however, highlight the global interconnections of militarized police violence. 

This roundtable and teach-in seeks to think about the situation in Burma conversation with the multiple uprisings against: 

murder of black and indigenous people by militarized police in the US and Canada crackdowns on democracy protesters in Hong Kong military violence against civilians and social movements in South Asia 

Panellists: 

Jasnea Sarma, National University of Singapore 

Emily Hue, University of California Riverside  

Aye Min Thant, Burmese-American journalist 

Htet Thiha Zaw, University of Michigan 

Moderator: Chu May Paing, Aruna Global South; University of Colorado Boulder 

Free and open to public, especially academics working with international students and students with heritage ties to war-torn parts of the world. 

The roundtable and teach-in will be followed by a workshop on policing in academic spaces and discussing ways we can work to decolonize and promote anti-racism in academia. Those interested in participating should indicate this when RSVPing for the roundtable/teach-in.  

This event is presented by Aruna Global South and YCAR
