Inclusion Week 2022 Fireside Chat: Who Gets to Rest?

Labour is political, and so is rest. This panel invites speakers to engage in a thoughtful conversation about the question “who gets to rest?” through various critical perspectives:

  • How does how we work today shape how we rest?
  • What are the harms that come from current patterns of rest?
  • What happens when care work gets counted/valued as productive work? What happens when it isn’t counted/valued?
  • What are some best practices for self-care/community care in the face of racial battle fatigue?

Panelists include Associate Professor Soma Chatterjee in the School of Social Work at the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies (LA&PS); Associate Professor Ethel Tungohan in the Department of Politics in the Faculty of LA&PS and Olamide Olatoye and Alanah Broomfield, co-presidents of the York University Black & Indigenous Varsity Student Athlete Alliance (BIVSAA).
