UWindsor’s annual Humanities Week will once again provide students and members of the community with opportunities to take part in a variety of free activities to expand their knowledge and enjoyment of such humanities-related disciplines as languages, literature, history, art, and philosophy, to name a few.
This years events include a welcome reception hosted by President Alan Wildeman on Monday with guest speaker, Lancer Women’s Basketball coach Chantal Vallée. She will discuss how the humanities have enhanced her life and career, while a dramatic reading from the play Picturesque and showing of the documentary One Home, will be featured.
The week’s events also include a lecture by Orphan Black actor and UWindsor alumnus Kevin Hanchard, who will present, Provocative Bodies: Race, Religion and Masculinity in Performance on Tuesday.
Thursday will bring a talk by Professor Thomas King, novelist, scholar, activist and author of The Inconvenient Indian, a visit co-sponsored by the President’s Office and the Humanities Research Group.
