Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982 is the life story of one young woman born at the end of the twentieth century in Korea and raises questions about endemic misogyny and institutional oppression that are relevant to us all. We'll come together (online!) at the end of September to share our thoughts! (I just finished it and it's amazing!).

Table Talks: Building Back with Justice

Table Talks is a time to come together to talk, laugh, and get to know one another's points of view. Meeting around our virtual tables (with or without our dinners), we begin to explore and engage in discussions about the big and not so big questions we all have - anything from ethics to daily life as a student. The hope is that as we get together discussions will deepen, relationships will be built and strengthened and that we'll have fun!

This Session’s Topic - Building Back with Justice: As we ‘re-build’ after COVID, how do we ensure we build a better society? One that addresses inequality and climate change, and where human flourishing is promoted.



Please share the ILSC!

As you can see, we have a lots of new events for you to join in! But we also want to see this wonderful community of support and learning to grow. Please come along to one of our new online welcome events and please shared the flyer below with anyone you think would be interested. Maybe you know some students about to come over to London - let them know about the ILSC! While we can't provide housing anymore, we still provide that sense of community and belonging we all love about the ILSC!
Share the ILSC!
