Shared Unity, Shared Action: Dismantling Anti-Asian Racism @ Online event
Mar 31 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

The Anti-Racism & Cultural Diversity Office joins the University of Toronto in condemning anti-Asian racism, misogyny, and all forms of racial violence. There is no denying the pain, sadness, and anger that many are feeling given recent events of racial and gender-based violence in Atlanta, Georgia. As we navigate and action-plan during these difficult times, the Anti-Racism & Cultural Diversity Office invites the community to collectively gather to confront, resist and denounce racism, anti-Asian racism, and White supremacy. Join us as we ignite love, compassion, support and restoration while building community during these challenging times.

This space will center a presentation and Q &A with May Lui, Educator and Consultant, on the topic, “Confronting Anti-Asian Racism: What you Need to Know”. This conversation will explore the complexities of anti-Asian racism, its impact and the principles that must be centered as we move forward to meaningful change.

  • Format: Presentation and Q & A, followed by a closure activity.
  • Platform: Virtual- Zoom.
  • Audience: Racialized voices will be prioritized. Allies are welcome to attend. Open to students, staff, faculty, librarians, chaplains, and external community.

Please note that Jia Yao and Bristy Chakrabarty from the Sexual Violence Prevention and Support Centre, will be available for support during this event.

Skule Lunch & Learn presents Something from Nothing: The Practice and Promise of 3D Printing @ Online event
Dec 1 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

 

U of T Engineering Lunch & Learn Join us this month as former EngSci Chair, Professor Mark Kortschot (EngSci 8T4), highlights the key principles of 3D printing and addresses the possible benefits and limitations of this family of techniques.

Industrial designers have used 3D printing technology for almost 35 years to build prototypes of their designs, but the field has expanded dramatically over the past ten years. Now, 3D printers are used to produce a wide variety of things, including airplane parts, buildings, custom prosthetics, edible pastries, and more.

In this talk, Professor Kortschot will talk about the range of advanced materials now being used to print load-bearing parts, which has been the focus of his research over the past five years. He will also talk about the home hobbyist market, which has exploded recently due to the expiration of key technology patents.

To illustrate exactly what is involved, Professor Kortschot will present a live demonstration during the Lunch & Learn presentation. He will design a small part in a computer-aided design program on camera, create the printing file, and send it to the desktop printer in his office to show how easy the process is.
