Deans Lecture: Faculty of Social Science & Humanities, UOIT                             

FREE EVENT

The Dean’s Lecture is the premiere event in the Public Speakers Series held every year by the Faculty of Social Science & Humanities at the University Of Ontario Institute Of Technology. The purpose of these lectures is to engage the university and the public in ideas and discussion around important social issues.

Always engaging, Dr. Gwynne Dyer is an author of several books, an historian, an independent journalist and syndicated columnist, and Officer of the Order of Canada. On October 17th, he will speaking on the subject of his latest book, Growing Pains: The Future of Democracy (and Work).  He asserts that we are now living in a world where Brexit and Trump are daily realities. But how did this come about? And what does it mean for the future? Gwynne Dyer asks how we got here, and where we go next.

Dyer examines the global challenges facing us all today and explains how they have contributed to a world of inequality, poverty, and joblessness ― conditions which he argues inevitably lead to the rise of populism. To avoid a social and political catastrophe, we will have to find ways of putting real money into the pockets of those who have no work.

Gwynne Dyer argues that his new book is not without hope. Our capacity for overcoming the worst has been tested again and again throughout history, and we have always survived. To do so now, Dyer argues, we must embrace radical solutions to the real difficulties facing individuals, or find ourselves back in the 1930s with no way out.
