EDUCATION SERIES – May

May 15 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Hycroft, 1489 McRae Avenue
Vancouver, BC V6H 1V1 Canada

Dr. Christine Baker is a History Professor at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Her early research focused on Shi'ism, culminating in the publication of "Medieval Islamic Sectarianism”(2019) which analyzed the formation of Medieval Muslim identities. Her current research focuses on Muslims living in non-urban communities in North America and the dynamics of non-urban populations.

The first Muslims came to North America as early as the 16th century. In the 19th century, many Muslim immigrants moved to North America, such as New York, Detroit, Toronto and Montreal. But there have always been sizeable populations of Muslim immigrants that built communities outside of major urban centers: the first Canadian mosque was in Edmonton (est 1938); in the US it was in North Dakota (est 1929).

Based on the collection of oral histories, archival materials and US census data, this talk will address the dynamics of non-urban Muslim populations, focusing on the Muslim community in a small town in western Pennsylvania. In this presentation Dr. Baker will discuss the process of researching the history of a living community as well as some of the unique issues and opportunities faced by Muslim populations in non-urban settings.

Monthly Sisterhood Spotlight

May 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 6:00 pm on day 16 of the month, repeating until June 16, 2021

Hycroft, 1489 McRae Avenue
Vancouver, BC V6H 1V1 Canada

Time for another SS! We have 2 more millennial faces for you to get to know, followed by an open forum. This month falls on a Tuesday. 

To remind you of what SS is all about – it’s a nod to what our club was founded for! One of our FAVOURITE things to do in the millennial group is to lift each other up, and be inspired by the achievements and spirit of our members. So, in addition to weekly Sunday shares in our millennial Whatsapp group chat, we are going to have a monthly Sisterhood Spotlight (SS), always taking place on the 16th at 6pm so that we can get a variety of days for different schedules. It is a catch up over Zoom where 2 of our members are given the floor to tell us what they're passionate about, what their dreams are, any projects/initiatives they are currently working on, where they come from and how they got to where they are now, and anything else they want to share! Everyone is welcome to speak each month, with 2 speakers guaranteed. If you'd like to speak at next month's SS (or on any given month), please let us know and/or Rebecca will contact you. We want every member to feel supported, and it will be great to connect with each other on things we may not have been aware about, hopefully a few serendipitous moments! Our group is as much for support as it is for socialising, and we want to ensure there is a forum each month for everyone to get the most out of their membership.  

Let the millennial mantra for 2021 be: Serendipity. Solidarity. Sisterhood

2021 Hycroft Lecture

May 26 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
$30

We are delighted to welcome Shachi Kurl as our speaker for the annual Hycroft Lecture, an important event in our club’s calendar that features an accomplished Canadian woman and highlights her distinguished achievements. 

Shachi is President of the Angus Reid Institute, Canada’s non-profit, non-partisan public polling foundation, and oversees research that reveals truths about how our values, beliefs, and priorities shape the future of our country and the current reality of our lives. Shachi spent the first half of her career as a political reporter and has nearly two decades of public policy expertise. She has been sought by policymakers to testify before the House of Commons and is regularly called upon by the media for her unique insights, including on CBC’s Power and Politics, in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Globe and Mail, and on the editorial pages of the Ottawa Citizen.

Shachi will share her accurate and deep understanding of what Canadians are collectively thinking and the influence this thinking will have on the future of our nation. She will also unveil the lessons and life experiences that helped propel her to the life she leads today. We look forward to welcoming you to an inspiring, frank and compelling talk.
