A homecoming for Dr. Mahtani
The day after her McKay Lecture, Dr. Minelle Mahtani, a professor of human geography and journalism at University of Toronto Scarborough, came to give a rather special talk in the SOSA speakers series. Dr. Mahtani graduated with Honours in Sociology from Dalhousie in 1993, working with Dr. Gardiner Barber as her supervisor and winning the Sociology medal that year. She went on to do a PhD at University College London, but not without also working a stint as a TV journalist for CBC's The National. She is currently producing and hosting the daily two-hour radio show Sense of Place on Roundhouse Radio, on the air at 98.3 in Vancouver, BC, and also available on line. Dr. Mahtani gave a captivating talk about what studying at Dalhousie meant to her and how she got to where she is now, focusing on the moments of serendipity as well as the determination that got her through the challenges - ready to meet new ones. Dr. Mahtani's book Mixed Race Amnesia: Resisting the Romanticization of Multiraciality was recently published by UBC Press.
