Creating Community Connections
As a Ph.D.candidate, I have been actively organizing inter-departmental academic events in the School of Languages, Literatures, Cultures, and Linguistics at the University of Calgary.
Both upcoming and past events are listed here.
Co-organized "Intersectionality Symposium" as the Vice Chair for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at the Graduate Student Association at the University of Calgary.
When: Friday, March 10, 2023, 9 AM – 4 PM
Where: Science Collaborative Space (ST 142) (hybrid option available via Zoom)
What: Three panel discussions on Intersectionality in Academia, Disability Awareness, Black Mental Health
Price: free (registration required for lunch)
Eat, Write, Hike
The writing retreat provides structured time, space and environment for graduate students of the School of Languages, Literatures, Linguistics and Cultures to focus solely on writing. Whether graduate students are working on their candidacy papers, thesis, conference abstracts, research publications, or a research grant, the writing retreat will make them feel inspired and supported. The writing retreats build routine and discipline while boosting creativity and flow (Murray, 2015).
The weekend-long retreat is generously funded by Language Research Centre.
Through Her Eyes
Directed and produced by Neha Bhatia, the mini-series Through Her Eyes is about navigating the healthcare system as a woman of colour in Canada. The video project will bring together the academic community, healthcare providers and women of colour patients and their families for informed conversations and discussions about race in a safe and compassionate space.
This project is made possible by the funding support of Telus Storyhive. The series will be distributed by TELUS Optik TV On Demand on at least 6 Community Showcase channels in Fall.
More updates coming. #stayconnected #watchlocal

“Narratives of Color” aims to raise awareness about the racial issues in Calgary, and Canada, in general, by discussing the topic of race, and by enabling participants to share their stories about race. As the founder and co-organizer, I began the project as a response to stand in solidarity against the police atrocities after the unfortunate death of George Floyd.
The GSA funded project, "Transcultural
Dialogues in World Cinema Series" explores the theme of Transfooding.
The objective is to facilitate dialogues
on transnational cinema and the
relationships between food,
identities, cultures, and senses.
This is a collaborative project between the School of Languages, Linguistics, Literatures and Cultures (SLLLC) and the Department of Communication, Media and Film Studies (CMF) at the University of Calgary.
