Upcoming Event: Finding the Soul in Data:  Learn to unpack the data and reveal the untold stories

Public opinion polling data can be used to tell a story. But, how is that story told and who tells it? Empower yourself by learning to unpack these data stories and reveal their political and personal meaning.

This workshop will look at public opinion data sets commissioned by Apathy is Boring to explore how stories are constructed using data. There will be particular focus given to the political views and actions of young Canadians.  

Interested in journalism or storytelling, activism or politics, how to make sense of current issues and the political landscape? Join us on Nov. 24!

Date: Wed., Nov. 24
Time: 3 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Dialogues for change: RE: Thinking Politics

The University Library and Democratic Engagement Exchange at the Faculty of Arts are partnering to deliver a year long series of programming for the university community that aims to instill and normalize participation in democratic processes and conversations. 

Civic literacy, and the literacy of listening, are guiding principles of the series and will be used to establish the framework through which conversations are grounded. The overall goal is to connect these key concepts  to our democratic institutions. The series will work to unpack power and politics, and deconstruct contentious language that inevitably arises in many discussions about politics.
