Library Speaker Series: What is Stronger Than Hate?

You’re invited to the Ryerson Library’s Speaker Series event:  What is Stronger Than Hate? Building Empathy in an Increasingly Violent World.

Wednesday, November 14, 2018 from 11-12PM in Library 405, on the Library’s 4th floor. No RSVP required.

For close to 25 years, the USC Shoah Foundation has been collecting, preserving and making accessible human stories from survivors and witnesses of genocide and mass violence. That collection is being used in education in more than 80 countries worldwide. The institute’s research shows that localized testimony based education programs can build empathy and inspire action among youth, particularly those who may be marginalized.

Dr. Kori Street is the Senior Director of Programs and Operations at the University of Southern California Shoah Foundation – The Institute for Visual History and Education.  She oversees education and research programs around the world that help to understand the causes and consequences of identity-based hate and genocide and the power of the human story to counter hatred.

If you have any questions or any particular accommodation please contact Anna Tassone (atassone@ryerson.ca)
