The Scholars' Hub @ Home series is brought to you by York Alumni Engagement. We invite students, alumni and all members of the community to join us. All sessions take place at 12pm ET.

Dr. Tom Hooper (PhD '16), Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies.

This year is the 40th anniversary of both the Toronto bathhouse raids and the founding of Pride Toronto. This presentation will reflect on the connections between the resistance to the bathhouse raids and the forgotten histories of Pride Toronto.

Hernán Humaña (MA '92), Associate Professor, School of Kinesiology & Health Science, Faculty of Health

In its 125 years of the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) history, one of the mantras has been Olympics and Politics do not mix. Many countries and athletes have experienced the IOC wrath for expressing political views and/or advancing political ideas. Today, the IOC states “No kind of demonstration or political, religious or racial propaganda is permitted in any Olympic sites, venues or other areas.” This talk will discuss the question, should the Olympic athletes be allowed to protest or not?
