Designed specifically for the McGill context, this workshop will expose the participant to a number of concepts related to equity and discrimination. During this session, participants will examine ways that unconscious or unintended bias can work its way into everyday interactions; they will analyze culture and identity to understand how bias forms, and how it impacts relationships; and they will work through practical scenarios to develop language, responses, and strategies for addressing inequality and subtle bias in the office and classroom settings.
The Islamic Studies Library is pleased to display a new exhibition featuring a fascinating selection of Arabic lithographed books from the Islamic Rare Books Collection. Invented in Germany in 1796, the printing technique called “lithography” remained a subsidiary method for book production in Europe, but quickly spread to the Muslim world. Lithographic printing consists of writing by hand on a smooth limestone plate, on which ink is then applied, to produce a printed page. The word "lithography" comes from the ancient Greek "lithos" (λιθος) meaning “stone”.
