Human Library Event Homecoming 2022
Join us for a Homecoming Human Library event!

Designed to break down barriers around challenging topics, Human Library events offer the opportunity for one-on-one conversations that will broaden your understanding and provide deep intellectual engagement.

Professors from the Faculty of Arts & Humanities and the Faculty of Information & Media Studies will serve as “books” for this event. Alumni and friends can select “books” for conversation. Each “book” will give a brief introduction to stimulating questions currently being asked about their topics – and then alumni and friends are free to ask questions.

Come join us for an evening of catching up with some of Western’s stellar faculty from the Faculty of Arts & Humanities and the Faculty of Media & Information Studies. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres will be served and a cash bar will be available.

Faculty of Information & Media Studies Book Titles include:

Forest City Memories: Remembering Communities and Civic Space
Basil Chiasson
, Assistant Professor, FIMS

"Collaborative and Community-Based Research in El Salvador – the Surviving Memory in Postwar El Salvador research initiative”
Amanda Grzyb, BA'94, MA'96, Associate Professor, FIMS
