Heather Latimer’s ASTU 100 classes focus on reading and writing about legal states of exception, and on examining forms of legal abandonment in connection to fictional representations of segregation, internment camps, residential schools, and “illegal” migration. Her teaching focuses on facilitating students’ capabilities as active and independent learners by engaging them in debates about representation, power and society from multiple perspectives. In 2017, she was the winner of the prestigious Killam Teaching Prize. In 2017-18 her ASTU 100 course will integrate a new, community-based experiential learning unit, which will link CAP Law and Society students with community organizations working in the legal non-profit sector.
