Power and privilege at the university

Posted by SOSA Webteam on October 24, 2017 in News

Sociology PhD student Hannah Main published an op-ed piece featured in Halifax weekly The Coast explaining Dalhousie University's long history of excluding people who are not in power from its hallowed halls. "[I]nstitutional discrimination is insidious. It needs to be rooted out through deep institutional change. To give others power, we must give up our power. This is never a comfortable process," Hannah writes.
