Cambridge Third Age Learning: The Experience of Refuge (Ages 18+)
Date: Thursday, June 13, 2019
Time: 10:00am - 12:00pm
Speaker: Dr. Vinh Nguyen
Location: Trillium United Church, 450 King St. E. (see map)
This talk contemplates the question: what is refuge? How do refugees experience refuge? When does a refugee stop being a refugee? The focus is not on legal or state definitions of asylum, but on the everyday and social experiences of those who pass through these bureaucratic processes.
Cambridge Third Age Learning (CTAL) is a movement that encourages learning and discovery experiences for those in the “third age”—the stage in one’s life beyond full-time employment. By cultivating opportunities for discussion and engaging the expertise of local university professors and community professionals, CTAL supports those who have an intellectual curiosity and an interest in life-long learning. At Idea Exchange, our hope is to foster a self-organized group which would create CTAL programs throughout the year with our support as a venue and promotional vehicle.
