Trent's Long Night Against Procrastination (LNAP) is a free event, held at the Student Center each November and March.
The purpose is to help students develop essential skills to manage demanding end-of-semester writing and study schedules.
At LNAP, students can learn strategies for time management, exam preparation, writing strategies, stress management and more in workshops and drop-in sessions. Students also can enjoy free stress-busters, including colouring, jam sessions, therapy dogs and healthy snacks.
Join in on a discussion with Olivia Nuamah on Wednesday, November 29th from 4:00 - 6:00 pm in Gzowski 117 with Professor Momin Rahman!
Olivia is a community builder, mother, and artist. As Pride Toronto’s Executive Director, she brings almost 25 years of experience working with marginalized communities on poverty reduction strategies in both the non-profit and government sectors. Her experience as a DJ in the Toronto and England club scenes has given her a unique understanding of the representation of trans and queer artists in cultural spaces and is driving her goals as she looks to the future of Pride
This event is graciously sponsored by the Master’s in Sustainability Studies, Sociology, Gender and Women’s Studies and The Colleges at Trent University.
Please note seating is limited.
Professor Hodgetts first travelled to Sachs Harbour, a tiny community on the south coast of Banks Island, NWT, in 2007. The work she and her graduate students have done with Inuvialuit community members (Inuvialuit are the Inuit of Canada’s western Arctic) since that first visit has transformed her understanding of archaeology and shifted her research in new directions. She will draw on her experiences to explore the challenges of doing community-based research in a northern context. Professor Hodgetts will also outline how they have responded to community members’ wishes for less destructive methods and more involvement in the research by utilizing geophysics, targeted excavation, digital technologies and social media. She will discuss the transformative effect her relationships with Inuvialuit community members have had on her research practice, which she now understands as a form of social activism. Finally, she will look to the future, outlining her plans to expand the Inuvialuit Living History website (www.inuvialuitlivinghistory.ca) to provide increased access for Inuvialuit to their cultural heritage in southern museums, and to work towards reconciliation by educating southern Canadians about Inuvialuit culture and heritage.
