Welcome to our new Activist-in-Residence, Gabriel Allahdua!
Gabriel Allahdua is the inaugural Activist-in-Residence (AiR), who will be housed in the Philosophy Department through the funding from the Grounded and Engaged Scholarship Lab (getlab.ca). The GET Lab seeks to support and amplify research that aligns with the aims of justice-seeking communities. This is a paid, full-time position funded by the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences, the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute (CESI), and the Canada Research Chair in Ethics and Global Social Change at Guelph. The AiR program provides an opportunity for an activist to write, teach, learn, and engage with students, staff, and faculty within the university environment and beyond. The AiR will be able to maximize the resources available at the U of G in order to amplify their activism and organizing work.
We are very happy to welcome Gabriel into our community!
