SASI Director Featured in Podcast Series ‘The Conversation’

SASI Director Dr. Satwinder Kaur Bains is featured as part of the ‘Don’t Call me Resilient‘ podcast series by “The Conversation.” The series, as noted on their website “was produced with a grant for Journalism Innovation from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada” and “is a provocative new podcast about race…(that) takes you deep into conversations with scholars and activists who view the world through an anti-racist lens. Instead of calling those who have survived the pain of systemic racism resilient, this podcast goes in search of solutions for those things no one should have to be resilient for.”

Dr. Bains addresses the “Model minority blues: The mental health consequences of being a model citizen” in episode 9 of the series with host Vinita Srivastava. The podcast is available to listen by clicking
