Dr. Marni Stanley shares her personal journey as a student and teacher

Dr. Marni Stanley shares her journey as a queer person through the education system during her spring 2023 Arts and Humanities Colloquium lecture. 

Her journey begins as a student and eventually as an instructor and an administrator. Stanley, who is currently Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, has taught both English and Women’s Studies at three universities and has been at Vancouver Island University since 1994.

Watch Stanley’s presentation:

Since its beginning in 2009, the Arts and Humanities Colloquium presentations have sparked conversations about ideas among members of the Arts and Humanities faculty and their communities both at VIU and in the mid-Island region. Presenters show how important the arts and humanities are to understanding today’s world.
