FIMS Homecoming Human Library

Friday, September 23, 2022
5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
John Labatt Visual Arts Centre (VAC)
Room: Cohen Commons

Professors from the Faculty of Arts & Humanities and the Faculty of Information & Media Studies will be available for one-on-one conversations that will broaden your understanding of relevant topics and provide deep intellectual engagement.

In order to promote discussion, faculty members will give a brief introduction to stimulating questions currently being asked about their topics – and then alumni and friends are free to ask questions and engage in dialogue.

Come join us for an evening of catching up with some of Western’s stellar faculty from the Faculty of Arts & Humanities and the Faculty of Media & Information Studies. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres will be served and a cash bar will be available.
