Conference Policies

The Public Humanities Hub strives to host inclusive, welcoming events. Additionally, the University of British Columbia is committed to equity. To this end, no hate speech, abuse, bullying or harassment of any kind will be tolerated, including but not limited to racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and ableism. Anyone found to be conducting themselves inappropriately will be warned, once. Should the behaviour continue, the individual will be removed from the event. Should you experience any harassment, please contact us.

Recording Policy

We will be recording some sessions, with presenter permission, but no discussions unless approved in advance by the participants. Recorded sessions will be indicated in the individual session descriptions available in the conference program.

In the event of a recorded session, it will be recorded via Zoom and posted publicly. The recording may contain attendees’ names and images. We recognize that this may be undesirable for some participants. If you do not wish for your name or image to be used in the video, please leave your video turned off during the session. You may also change your name to something generic like “Participant” or “Anonymous” in the Zoom meeting room by selecting yourself from the participants list and editing your name. By clicking the Zoom link to enter the room, you consent to being recorded and are aware of actions you can take to anonymize yourself during the event. If you do not want to participate in the live session, the recording will be posted at a later date to our YouTube channel.
