The vision behind DEMinar is to provide a gathering place for the DEM community at York, including faculty, and BDEM/MDEM/certificate students. It’s a place to learn about new disciplinary perspectives, to apply what we’re learning to contemporary events and to invite guest speakers to share their perspectives. It’s also a place where we help build our community, advertise other student-led events, and share relevant opportunities and information.
