U of T students join universities around the world to address laws that suppress media, freedom of expression
High-profile charges against whistleblowers and leakers like Julian Assange, Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning are exposing the legal consequences for publicly releasing government secrets and are shedding light on the way nations use the law to suppress media and freedom of expression.
A global network of universities, including the University of Toronto, has begun to engage in a large-scale research project to explore how countries are using local laws to stifle journalists, media outlets and whistleblowers.
In 2017, major media exposés of predatory sexual behaviour by powerful figures unleashed #MeToo, a hashtag now tweeted and shared more than 20 million times.
Using the hashtag, people all over the world began to share stories of their own experiences of abuse at the hands of people whose wealth and power had protected them from justice, and this public reckoning led to a major – and ongoing – cultural shift.
U of T's English-Chinese translation program continues to grow, bridging two cultures in the process
Louie Xia first started translating Chinese text into English as a hobby in Grade 8.
He would translate all sorts of things – news articles covering computer games, historical articles about the Second World War, and even the text files embedded in mobile games. By high school, it had developed into a passion.
