When Dr. Jyoti Sanghera arrived at UVic in May, she was given a particularly warm welcome by Gender Studies. Sanghera was here to deliver a keynote address, "Dying to Live," at the 2017 CARFMS conference Forgotten Corridors: Global Displacement and the Politics of Engagement. She is currently Chief of the Asia Pacific Section, Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Geneva. But from 1993-99, Sanghera was a popular faculty member in UVic's Gender Studies Department.
