CGED Knowledge Exchange Series

Workshop: Difference as Privilege

Workshop: Difference as Privilege

Speaker: Professor Dina Iordanova

Date:  Monday, December 18, 2017

Time: 12:00-2:00 pm

Venue: 408, Run Run Shaw Tower, Centennial Campus

Professor Dina Iordanova

A native of a marginal East European country who does not hold of a Western doctorate on the one hand. 

A full professor at an ancient British University at 44 and an experienced administration/research leader on the other. 

Wherever I go, I am cast as a non-standard academic, an opinionated foreign woman – exotic and unpredictable. 

I have learned to turn it into an advantage and not shy from leadership opportunities when they seem right. 

In this workshop, I will share thoughts on adversity and resilience in the arts as they are informed by my personal experience of migrant woman working in a variety of cultural contexts. 

My introductory remarks will be used as the basis for an open-ended discussion with attendees.
