Deconstructing FOBS: what does it mean to be "fresh off the boat"?
What are the effects of this dialogue surrounding immigrants and people of colour? Who benefits from this type of language and how?
Co-sponsored by the Burnaby Public Library
Sukh has spent a few good years holed up on the mountain, burning through her undergraduate degree in English and she has no idea if the end is near. However the most productive use of her time was spent backpacking through Europe and the year she spent working full-time in a private school with young children. If you're looking for some quick wit and a laugh, you will find her buried under the stacks of books in the library. You won't be disappointed.
