Africa is a Country

Africa is a Country | 2013

The facetiously-titled online publication Africa Is a Country, founded by Sean Jacobs in 2009, is a site of opinion, analysis, and new writing. Originally focused on challenging media representations of the continent, it has become a leading source for good writing about Africa. I contributed seven articles in 2013-2014

Skeptic's Guide to Self-Care Title Slide

Self-Care for Artists / Skeptic’s Guide to Self-Care | 2018

Working at Artists’ Health Alliance, I found that artists’ number one health issue is precarity. So you can imagine that the self-care craze, very popular among creatives (and everyone else), was something I regarded cynically. When I was asked to put together a workshop on self-care for artists, I accepted because it was a way […]

Edward (Edo) Abramovitch (December 13 1949 – June 2 2013) was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. He attended York University, where he studied under Irving Layton. He wrote poetry throughout his adult life. […]

Artists and the Determinants of Health | 2018

One way to understand the concern with artists’ health is to understand what makes artists sick. There are occupational hazards which include, but go beyond, toxic materials and risky sets (think of the death and multiple injuries in the making of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark). Working at Artists’ Health Alliance, I found that financial […]

A major international educational initiative at the Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research, the Planetary Health Film Lab is an intensive program designed for youth who have a story to tell about climate change and health and want to do so through film. During a week-long workshop at York University, Toronto, a group of international […]

Ethical writing

Writing for non-academic audiences | 2020

Online publications are hungry for content, academics are hungry for relevance. A match made in heaven. I developed Writing for non-academic audiences to help the pivot from academic to non-academic writing. With the same material a researcher uses to make an argument in a peer-reviewed paper, they can tell a story. This professional development offering […]
