OISE is celebrating their 50th anniversary this May with a number of events to commemorate its 50 Years of Impact! On May 9th, the R.W.B Jackson lecture will recognize this milestone through an exploration of what the next 50 years of OISE impact will bring. The Jackson lecture will be a panel discussion moderated by TVO’s Steve Paikin and featuring the following OISE experts:
- Carol Campbell on Leadership and Educational Change
- Sherene Razack on Critical Race, Gender and Citizenship Studies in Education
- Jean-Paul Restoule on Aboriginal Education
- Michael Skolnik on Higher Education Systems
In honour of the celebrations, during the pre-lecture reception from 5:30 to 6:30, the OISE Library will feature an assortment of “50things” displays and activities! Come trade a wish for social justice for one of 50 apples, check out our photo exhibit of 50 uniquely OISE chairs, or build your version of Brutalist architecture with 50 wooden blocks! Explore our displays which highlight OISE content, such as 50 feminist lectures, 50 OISE Press books, and 50 books approved by the Ministry of Education for teaching in Ontario. As a keepsake, take home a copy of one of 50 Orbit Magazines.
