Breaking Boundaries

Breaking Boundaries: (Counter) Accounts during the Pandemic - Letters to future generations is a major digital book in four languages (English-French-Portuguese-Spanish). This book is part of a desire to think outside the box of publishing and to bring together contributions from many fields, including academic, artistic, poetic, photographic, etc. The basic idea was to produce accounts, in various forms, related to the ways in which humanity has been confronted with the Covid-19 pandemic. It is a form of "accounting" that will hopefully inform future generations who want to learn more about the effects that the pandemic has had around the globe. The editorial team consisted of eight accounting faculty researchers - from three continents. Through this book, we are pleased, in a sense, to help rethink the boundaries surrounding the publishing world. Please feel free to promote the book and circulate it in many ways. In today's digitalized world, it is time to engage in deeper thinking about the ways in which knowledge is disseminated.

Rompre les barrières : (Contre) Rapports sur la pandémie - Lettres aux générations futures est un livre numérique d’une importance majeure en quatre langues (anglais-français-portugais-espagnol). Ce livre s'inscrit dans une volonté de sortir des sentiers battus de l'édition et de rassembler des contributions issues de nombreux domaines, qu’elles soient académiques, artistiques, poétiques, photographiques, etc. Le projet s’est donné pour objectif de produire des récits, sous diverses formes, liés à la manière dont l'humanité a été confrontée à la pandémie de Covid-19. Il s'agit d'une forme de "comptabilité" qui, nous l'espérons, informera les générations futures désireuses d'en savoir plus sur les effets de la pandémie dans le monde. L'équipe éditoriale est composée de huit chercheurs en comptabilité, originaires de trois continents. Grâce à ce livre, nous sommes heureux, en un sens, de contribuer à repenser les frontières qui entourent le monde de l'édition. N'hésitez pas à promouvoir le livre et à le faire circuler de multiples façons. Dans le monde numérisé d'aujourd'hui, il est temps d'engager une réflexion plus approfondie sur les modes de diffusion de la connaissance.

Rompendo Barreiras: Contra-Relatos diversos durante a pandemia - Cartas e mensagens para as gerações futuras é um importante livro digital em quatro idiomas (inglês-francês-português-espanhol). Este livro é parte de um desejo de pensar fora da caixa das publicações e de reunir contribuições de muitas áreas, incluindo acadêmica, artística, poética, fotográfica, etc. A idéia básica era produzir relatos, de várias formas, relacionados às maneiras como a humanidade tem sido confrontada com a pandemia de Covid-19. É uma forma de "contabilização" que, espera-se, informará as gerações futuras que queiram saber mais sobre os efeitos que a pandemia teve ao redor do mundo. A equipe editorial foi composta por oito acadêmicos/as de contabilidade - de três continentes. Através deste livro, temos o prazer, de certa forma, de ajudar a repensar as barreiras que cercam o mundo editorial. Por favor, sinta-se à vontade para promover o livro e distribuí-lo de várias maneiras. No mundo digitalizado de hoje, é hora de nos engajarmos em uma reflexão mais profunda sobre as formas pelas quais o conhecimento é disseminado.

Expository Essay Prompt:

    Trigger warning; the following subject will be about medical assistance in dying (MAID) and mental health.
In December 2022, the Ministers of Canada extended the MAID expansion law that was set to take place on March 17, 2023 and has now been extended until further notice. This law would have declared mental illness as an eligibility covered by MAID. Justice Minister, David Lametti in his statement claimed, "We want to be prudent, we want to move in a step–by-step way so that we don't make mistakes." This extension will grant more time for the Canadian government to set standards as well as prepare provinces and physicians for this change. The Government of Canada webpage below gives great detail on the details covering MAID including what it is, eligibility, the procedures for obtaining MAID, and more. The notion of granting individuals with a mental illness as their sole underlying medical condition has caused a great divide with those who are and who are not in favour.

Prompt: Write an expository essay on your thoughts regarding this extended law that would allow individuals suffering from a mental illness be eligible for MAID.

    Deshkan Ziibi Conservation Impact Bond Project: On Conservation Finance, Decolonization, and Community-Based Participatory Research

    A Message from the Leadership Team

    This report includes elements of Indigenous and Western forms of knowledge to share a holistic story of the Deshkan Ziibi Conservation Impact Bond (DZCIB). The authors sought to write this report being guided by a “Two-Eyed Seeing” perspective1, bringing together Indigenous and Western ways of knowing, seeing, and being. As a reader, you are implored to reflect on the colonial legacy which continues to disempower Indigenous value systems and ways of life. You are encouraged to approach this report with an open mind and heart, challenge your base assumptions, and embrace the integration of diverse value systems and worldviews. This project was conducted in the spirit of reconciliation, decolonization, and indigenization. All three are recognized as continuous processes that occur on many levels including: intrapersonal, interpersonal, community, organizational, and national.
