Title: Mothers, Teachers, and Ambassadors - Congress 2011 Descriptive info: Jun 4, 2011.. Jacqueline LeBlanc Cormier, Experience Congress 2011.. Parenting a child with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) has its share of challenges.. But Pinar Kocak knows first-hand that these parenting challenges extend beyond the home and enter the classroom.. The University of Lethbridge graduate student recently conducted research on Alberta mothers who chose to home school their ADHD child.. The topic is close to home for Kocak who home schools her 16-year-old ADHD son.. The purpose of the study was to talk to mothers who have considered, who are currently, or who once home schooled their ADHD child and explore the reasons that compelled them to do so.. “(In a communal school), rules and regulations are all there to lead you to a successful school year,” she says.. “In such an environment, students are taught and expected to display certain behaviours, but some children are unable to do so.. Those children who are unable to sustain attention, sit still, wait for their turn, work quietly, listen, comply with their teachers’ instructions, follow through with assignments, and concentrate on the task at hand are all identified as having ADHD.. ”.. In Alberta, ADHD students are excluded from special education coding and funding.. This means the child will not be guaranteed a one-on-one aid, classroom support or modifications, leaving the parents with limited options.. The school will often recommend the child turns to medication.. When the medication works, she says, the results are almost immediate.. But, medication doesn’t always work, or it sometimes comes with nasty side effects.. “The mother is often caught between pressures from school to medicate her child, her own ... and provide their children with what they needed when they needed it..

Title: Out of the Ruins: The Wire’s Baltimore - Congress 2011 Descriptive info: Jun 3, 2011.. Sarah Bernstein, Experience Congress 2011.. McMaster University PhD candidate Sarah Trimble’s paper, “Body-More, Murdaland: Geographies of Gender, Race, and Capital in HBO’s.. The Wire.. ,” reads the show’s Baltimore, Maryland as a space of becoming.. Trimble begins with a discussion of.. ’s second season, which opens with the discovery of thirteen Jane Does in a shipping container in the Baltimore harbor.. The port, in its last stages of physical and economic decay, becomes a site of convergence for space and flesh.. Jump cuts create visual proximities between the embodied vulnerability of trafficked female bodies and the death of work for white, working-class men.. As trafficked bodies, the Jane Does act as economic supplements to working-class labour, while representing, at the same time, the eclipse of the working-class labour sector.. The Jane Does also suggest a “feminization” of work – serving as a reminder that the labour market has shifted in favour of the service industry.. In this way, Trimble sees.. playing with the long (think Imperial) history of gendering ... For Trimble, who is interested in finding other ways to read apocalyptic narratives,.. ’s ruined Baltimore develops and rebuilds at the same time as it fissures to reveal the displaced, invisible bodies – the “collateral damage” (incidentally, also the title of the season’s fifteenth episode) of this economic development.. Survivalist readings of apocalyptic narratives amount to a “reconstituting [of] the family around a patriarchal model,” Trimble says.. Finding an alternative reading, she feels, is ethically important.. “I was interested in the suppressed alternative, what happens to women and children in the apocalyptic vision.. Trimble sees.. as exploring the “condition that we live in”: the ways in which city-dwellers inherit proximities and fields of possibility from the city’s “spaces that open and close.. Histories get materialized in our lives and bodies,” she says.. The city-space offers a “spectrum of futures.. The Wire’s.. apocalyptic Baltimore is not just a ruin out of which something can be built; it is a site of excavation where visions and memories themselves resonate..

Title: Afghan Detainee Issue Still Unresolved for Canada - Congress 2011 Descriptive info: Matthew Sheriko, Experience Congress 2011.. The war in Afghanistan has shown an inconsistent commitment to international humanitarian from Canadian forces’.. The treatment of detainees by Canadian forces in Afghanistan was the subject of Marc Gionet’s presentation to the Conference of the Canadian Peace Research Association.. Gionet, a professor of Human Rights at St.. Thomas University in Fredericton and the Director of the Atlantic Human Rights Centre, has been studying the international law violations by Canadian forces with detainees in Afghanistan.. “Canada holds an obligation to contribute towards creating conditions for post-conflict peace.. Neglecting this obligation will undermine expressed objectives of nurturing a democratic society and engaging in the protection and promotion of human rights domestically and internationally,” stated Gionet.. Canada first sent troops to Afghanistan in 2001 as a part of a coalition with the United States and Britain.. Canada plans to pull out the rest of its troops from Afghanistan later this year.. Gionet delved into an issue that brought the Canadian Government under scrutiny from the public in 2009.. They managed to avoid more heat from opposition parties at the time when Parliament was prorogued and hearings suspended.. He highlighted the commitments taken by Canada when they ratified.. Protocols Additional to the Geneva Conventions.. and other international and humanitarian laws.. Agreements the United States didn’t sign.. These commitments made up Canada’s treatment ... Government and some have been subsequently tortured in Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay.. In 2005, Canada signed an agreement with the Afghan Government that outlined conditions for transferring.. When that was deemed unsatisfactory, a second agreement was signed in 2007.. “The new agreement, you have to give credit, it is an improvement over the initial agreement but it’s still unsatisfactory and it doesn’t mean that Canada is meeting its international obligations.. Gionet emphasized Canada’s commitments that Afghanistan and the US aren’t tied to, but also the disregard of three nation’s shared binding to the.. International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.. “Such disregard for Canada’s international human rights obligations and violations of international law, undermine Canada’s objectives in Afghanistan and doing serious harm towards creating effective conditions for post-conflict peace and a harmonized Afghan society.. He also recognized a trend in Canada that was experienced by other Western nations.. “After 9/11 there was a distinct swing toward massive erosion and clawbacks of specifically civil and political rights.. Since that time, we’ve seen the pendulum come back towards a more centred or balanced focus In terms of how much erosion takes place, is up to the citizenry.. It’s how much we allow and how much we put up with without a fuss.. We need to be very vocal when these incidents are taking place.. Photo: Matthew Sheriko..
