This workshop is based on the Safe Spaces workshop first designed and implemented by the McGill Equity Subcommittee on Queer People. Participants in this workshop may choose to participate in our Safer Spaces Allies program.
Participants will have the opportunity to examine how race and culture affect daily life in the McGill community. This workshop addresses the challenges of fostering diversity-receptive cultural attitudes, reducing structural barriers in University life, and building and maintaining respectful spaces for interpersonal engagement. Through case studies, participants will have the chance to practice identifying and responding to the types of discrimination most commonly encountered in campus life.
Leonardo Against Nature
Leonardo da Vinci’s investigations of nature led him to reflect on the “counter-natural,” a category revived from antiquity that identified art with violence. This paper will examine Leonardo's redefinition of thecounter-natural, looking both at his sources and at the significance of his thinking for the understanding of painting ca. 1500.
