The CERLAC Salon Series 2020-2021 presents: ‘Cañari Children and Cows: Thinking Ch’ixi Temporalities in Ecuadorian Andes’ Tickets
Nov 26 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

The CERLAC Salon Series 2020-2021 presents:

Dr. Cristina Delgado Vintimilla (Faculty of Education)

Thursday November 26, 1:00-2:30 p.m.

‘Cañari Children and Cows: Thinking Ch’ixi Temporalities in Ecuadorian Andes’

In this presentation Dr. Delgado Vintimilla considers the intersection of multiple and, at times, seemingly conflicting temporalities in Andean childhoods. Drawing on Silvia Rivera Cusicanqui’s scholarship on Andean sociology and on her ethnographic research with Cañari families she shares the multiple ways in which Cañari families’ and children’s relations with cows and milk production are fueled by both capitalist and Andean temporalities that cannot be thought as opposites. These temporal relations do not create confusion or limiting binaries but are, Delgado Vintimilla proposes, itinerant. This presentation brings an insight into how Cañari children’s and cows’ collective lives are knitted within ch’ixi temporalities.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A session.

York University’s Borderless Higher Education for Refugees (BHER) Project, Faculty of Education, and Centre for Refugee Studies present a monthly virtual colloquium series on the intersections of refugee education, anti-Black racism, and COVID-19 in Canada and East Africa. 

Through a series of talks, film, and an open-mic event, experts will consider the unique challenges that the twinned pandemics pose to refugee communities and educators in Canada and/or East Africa; highlight the unique knowledge that refugee communities and the educators who work with them bring to learning in situations of constraint; and offer new lenses to make meaning of our current moment.

This colloquium is the first of its kind to feature experts from York University and from institutions that are comprised of or work with refugees in equal measure. Together, this series will: (1) deepen connections among refugee communities, educational leaders, and scholars within and across institutions; (2) foster a sense of reciprocity in learning; (3) recognize and validate the unique expertise that refugee communities bring to time- or resource-constrained situations; and (4) educate all attendees on a range of topics relevant to refugee education, COVID-19, and anti-Black racism.

The colloquium series will be held monthly throughout the academic year at 10:00 AM EDT/5:00 PM EAT.

CRS Book Launch – “Refugee Law after 9/11: Sanctuary and Security in Canada and the United States” Tickets
Mar 16 @ 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm

Abstract: Common wisdom suggests that 9/11 changed everything about refugee law in the United States and Canada. But did it? Refugee Law after 9/11 systematically examines the evidence to reveal that refugee rights were already so whittled down in both countries before 9/11 that there was relatively little room for negative change after the attacks. It also shows that the Canadian refugee law regime reacted to 9/11 in much the same way as its US counterpart, and these similar reactions raise significant questions about security relativism and national self-image in the two countries.

Professor Obiora C. Okafor is the York Research Chair in International and Transnational Legal Studies (Tier 1) and a tenured Full Professor of Law at the Osgoode Hall Law School of York University, Toronto, Canada. He is the UN Independent Expert on Human Rights and International Solidarity and a former Chairperson of the UN Human Rights Council Advisory Committee. The Co-Editor-in-Chief and former General Editor of the international journal, the Transnational Human Rights Review, and editorial board member of a number of other academic journals around the world, he has held the Gani Fawehinmi Distinguished Chair in Human Rights Law at the Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, and served as a Visiting Professor at a number of universities and institutes around the world. He was conferred the Award of Academic Excellence of the Canadian Association of Law Teachers in 2010 and the Gold Medal for Exceptional Research and Major Contributions to Jurisprudence of the Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies in 2013. He is the author or co-editor of seven books and over one hundred articles and other scholarly pieces.
