Wall Catalyst Student Fellows 2022

In partnership with the Public Scholars Initiative (Graduate and Post Doctoral Studies, UBC) PWIAS has brought together a cohort of 10 Wall Catalyst Student Fellows. Among other activities, the cohort will participate in the course: Facing Human Wrongs.

Facing Human Wrongs is an online, interdisciplinary course that addresses the ethical and practical complexities and paradoxes of mainstream approaches to global challenges.

The course content touches upon systemic, historical and ongoing violence, unsustainability, our complicities in social and ecological harm, and our tendency to address complex problems, such as biodiversity loss, food insecurity, economic and political crises, and the potential for social and environmental collapse, with simplistic solutions. The course requires students to be willing to be uncomfortable and to have their perspective challenged.
