This was an eventful call: thank you to everyone who attended for making it a fun discussion. This post will offer a quick summary of resources and links that where brought up throughout the meeting.
For this meeting we had several topics created from last week’s discussion about antifragility and resilience, namely:
- Social infrastructure
- Further discussion on resilience and antifragility
We decided to blend the topics as many of them connect in one way or another. I will offer a summary of some of the links that were shared, but I would highly recommend taking a look for yourselves.
- A CBC News article discussing Vancouver Coastal Health's interpretation of provincial policy about publishing COVID-19 school exposure events: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/vancouver-coastal-health-shirks-b-c-s-policy-to-publish-covid-19-school-exposure-events-1.5733142
- This article from The Atlantic explores the growing fear around America’s upcoming election. Mainly focused on the fear of civil unrest following a close win, with Trump seeming unwilling to relinquish control: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2020/11/what-if-trump-refuses-concede/616424/
- Academic Women is a network for female faculty at SFU. They undertook a study in 2019 which explored issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion. The report can be found here: https://www.sfu.ca/academicwomen.html
- Brené Brown interviews Sonya Renee on body shame, radical self-love and social justice.
- BC Centre for Disease Control's official COVID-19 Language Guide details appropriate terminology for written and digital content: http://www.bccdc.ca/Health-Info-Site/Documents/Language-guide.pdf
- David Graeber, an author and anthropologist, wrote a fascinating book entitled Debt: The First 5,000 Years that explores credit and debt from a historical perspective. Graeber shows how arguments about debt and debt forgiveness have been going on long before we invented coin-based currency: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6617037-debt
