Growing Pains is BACK! After a bit of an accidental hiatus, we have returned to bring you two episodes all about student activism. In Part 1, we revisit the events of 1999-2001 that we discussed in 'The Company Trent Keeps,' the closing of Peter Robinson College, the shifts in Trent's governance, the structural changes that are still playing out today -- but this time, from the students' perspective. Much of the radical, direct action based culture that once attracted students to Trent has faded over the 20 years since.
In Part 2 of this episode we try to answer this question of why? What happened to this culture of revolution, and can we revive it?
Thanks to Dr. David Tough, Dr. Alison Hearn, and Ziysah von Bieberstein for their stories and contributions to this episode.
