We are pleased to focus on the College of Arts. There are so many things happening in the college post-pandemic.
Our first speaker is Kimberly Francis (Professor, Music) who will speak about the massive new development of the Arts Research Centre on campus. Spearheaded by a multimillion-dollar grant to the COA-based International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation.
We will have a small break and then continue our COA focus with the COA Dean, Dr. Samantha Brennan. We are honoured that Dr. Brennan will be joining us.
Dr. Brennan is a feminist philosopher and ethicist, Brennan’s research spans a wide range of areas in contemporary theoretical and applied ethics, including rights; moral issues within families, such as children's rights, parental obligations, and family justice; feminist ethics; and the moral and political value of equality. Her ongoing research interests also include gender identity and sexuality, workplace ethics, and the moral significance of human mortality.
