Social Change – public conversation with Aziz Choudry – Aug 28, 2017

All are invited to attend a conversation with
Aziz Choudry at
Sissiboo Coffee in Bear River on Monday, August 28th at 7:00 PM. Doors open at 6:30

A long time proponent of social change, Choudry suggests that some of the most radical critiques, understandings and theories about the world, its power structures and dominant ideologies, the fragility of the environment and indeed the most powerful visions for social change, emerge from ordinary people coming together and working for such change.  In this spirit, all are invited to attend this conversation with Aziz at Sissiboo Coffee in Bear River on August 28th at 7:00 PM. Doors open at 6:30.

Choudry is Associate Professor in the Department of Integrated Studies in Education at
McGill University and a visiting professor at the Faculty of Education, University of
Johannesburg, where he is affiliated to the Centre for Education Rights and
Transformation. He is author or co-author of several books including Learning Activism:
The Intellectual Life of Contemporary Social Movements (University of Toronto Press,
2015), and co-editor of Learning from the Ground Up: Global Perspectives on Social
Movements and Knowledge Production (Palgrave Macmillan, 2010), Just Work?
Migrant Workers’ Struggles Today (Pluto Press, 2015) and Unfree Labour? Struggles of
Migrant and Immigrant Workers in Canada (forthcoming, PM Press).
Choudry serves on the boards of the Immigrant Workers Centre, Montreal and the
Global Justice Ecology Project.
