CafeLitt 109: From Margine to center

Thu 19 Feb 2009, 23:10, by Amir Khadir, at Thomson House: 3650 Rue McTavish Montreal (Map)

Dr. Amir Khadir (born 1961 in Tehran, Iran) is a francophone Iranian-Québécois politician, the MNA-elect for Mercier, and currently the male spokesperson for Québec solidaire, a sovereignist and left-wing political party which was created by the merger of the Union des Forces Progressistes and Option Citoyenne, a feminist political movement, in February, 2006.

On December 8, 2008, Khadir became the first and only elected representative for Québec solidaire in the general election in Quebec.

This session Dr. Khadir will talk about how, we as immigrants, can come to the center of the society from being passive in the margin.

About us

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of mostly Persian young students, scholars and professionals who gather every Thursday evening around 19h00 in a café to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. We started these gatherings on Jan 18th, 2007. Each week, one of us takes the responsibility of presenting a topic (in Persian, English or French) for about an hour in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view.
CaféLitt is open to all comments, suggestion, collaboration and new ideas. CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science and philosophy in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of your community.
CaféLitt is officially registered as a non-profitable group and is a nonpartisan, nonreligious and nonpolitical entity.
