Registration is now open for a new semester of our SFU Shadbolt Graduate Liberal Studies Big Idea Seminar Series. This time we're bringing GLS to community centres and libraries in Burnaby and Vancouver, as well as revisiting the Century House in New Westminister.
This semester we'll be offering the following seminars:
- John Carter: Where the Boys Are: The Role of Men in the 21st Century
- Jennifer Chutter: Finding Home in an Evolving City
- Reema Faris: The Threat of the Uppity Woman
- Duane Fontaine: Flourishing: Ancient and Modern Approaches
- Duane Fontaine and Kerstin Stuerzbecher: Work and Care: Duty or Joy

- Veronica McGhee: The End is Nigh? Apocalypse in Literature and Society
- Roberta Staley: Mightier Than the Sword: Female Journalists’ Impact on Gender Equality in Afghanistan
- Carol Tulpar: Culture, Identity and Food – An Exploration
These free seminar style classes provide participants with an opportunity to revisit, rethink, and reframe many of the most influential works of Western culture in light of current topics of social importance. Each seminar consists of two two-hour workshops on a wide range of topics and will be presented by GLS alumni and SAR/GLS PhD students.
For registration and detailed information on this year's seminars, check out our Shadbolt-GLS Big Ideas Seminar Series website.
