The Alternative Campus Tour at York University

Description

The alternative campus tour serves as pedagogical tool to equip and engage students and community members to critically examine conceptions of the campus space and community. The project seeks to select and collect material and stories about different sites of the campus and make them widely available to the campus population and the wider public. By walking the campus as tourists and talking about the campus as tour guides, the alternative campus tour seek to enable students to learn and converse about the historical context of their university. This participatory learning process gives students the opportunity to explore and contest how the campus space is or could be used by members of the university community; and, it allows them to envision new stories about the campus space.
