Thinking Matters with SFU Philosopher's Café host Reema Faris - Virtual

Put your philosopher's hat on and head into a Zoom call to discuss relevant social issues!

Come join our regular SFU Philosophers’ Café host Reema Faris for a discussion on topical social issues.

  • May 10: Let’s go to the movies! Hollywood’s big night (The Oscars) was on April 25th. Whether or not you’ve seen the films honoured, overlooked, or ignored, what draws you to the movies and what makes a good movie?

  • June 7: Hey Dad!: given divergent perspectives on masculinity and gender roles, how have your views and understandings of what it means to be a father changed?

  • June 21:Congratulations!: It’s the end of another academic school year in an era of uncertainty. What advice do you have to offer the Class of 2021?

  • July 12: The True North Strong and Free: What does Canada mean to you?

  • August 9: You’ve got a friend in me! Friends are the ones who often help us through the ups and downs of life’s journey. What are your experiences of friendship and how have those relationships changed as the second year of the global pandemic unfolds?
