Opening the doors to rights for live-in caregivers: A critical discussion of Canada's live-in caregiver program

Mon, 2008-03-10 18:00 - 20:00
Chancellor Day Hall : 3644 rue Peel Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 1W9

Panel discussion: Abigail Bakan (Professor of Political Studies and Women's Studies, Queen's University); Cecilia Diocson (Executive Director, National Alliance of Philippine Women in Canada); Delia de Veyra (Vice Chairperson, PINAY, former live-in caregiver program participant); and Walter Chi-Yan Tom (lawyer practicing immigration law in Montreal). Moderator: Jill Hanley (Assistant Professor, School of Social Work, McGill, co-founder of the Immigrant Workers' Centre). The Live-In Caregiver program brings thousands of domestic workers to Canada on temporary work visas each year to fill a labour market gap to provide care for children and elderly persons. Mostly women from developing countries, these caregivers are required to live in the homes of their employers, and their immigration status remains precariously tied to their jobs. The temporary status of live-in caregivers in Canada creates a context that leaves caregivers vulnerable to abuse and to denial of workers' rights. Is the live-in caregiver progr

QCD, strings and black holes: A duality between gravity and field theory

Fri, 2008-03-28 15:30 - 16:30
Rutherford Physics Building : 3600 rue University Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 2T8

Bell Lecture: Professor Juan Maldacena, Institute for Advanced Study. Abstract: The theory of strong interactions, QCD, has excitations that are well described by strings. These strings appear most simply in theories with a large number of colors, instead of the three colors we have in QCD. For theories that are similar in spirit to QCD one can relate these gauge theory strings to the strings of quantum gravity. In particular, some ten dimensional geometries are associated to four dimensional quantum field theories. We will describe how to use this relation to learn about strongly interacting quantum field theories. This relation also elucidates the black hole information puzzle.
