Lecture series in partnership with U of T Mississauga set to make comeback


Published February 22, 2023 at 4:20 pm

A lecture series in partnership with the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) Experiential Education Unit has returned to the city.

The series, called Lecture Me! will feature professors from multiple disciplines and is open to both residents and non-residents over the age of 13.

The series will also highlight research from various departments by UTM faculty members and feature a different member each month who will provide a presentation about their research.

The upcoming lecture which will take place on Mar. 7, is called “Learning Technology Systems in Everyday Life: Women’s Experiences Navigating Refugee Resettlement” and will be presented by Professor Negin Dahya.

The presentation will feature research that showcases findings from nine focus group discussions with women in Washington State who have experienced forced migration and are now living in the U.S.

Preliminary findings from this research will offer an idea of what types of technology education and access services are available to women and will address how women learn to navigate technology systems in everyday life, across domestic, public and government spheres.

The event will be hosted virtually by the Mississauga Library System through their Virtual Library – Webex and will begin at 7:00 p.m.

While the event is free, registration is required in advance.
