Justin Neufeld has been an Instructor of Philosophy at CMU since 2008.
What are you teaching right now that you're most excited about?
This winter I'm teaching Disability and Difference: Philosophical and Theological Perspectives. It's a class that I've really come to under the influence of students here at CMU. Years ago, a student wanted to do an independent study on disability, and I had more interest than expertise, but we were willing to kind of work on it together, and that gave me confidence a couple of years later to offer a course on the subject. This year will be the second time I'm teaching it.

Music by Indigenous artists pumped through the Loewen Athletic Centre at Canadian Mennonite University (CMU) on January 11, as crowds of people packed full the stands for the CMU Blazers' first Indigenous Peoples Day.
CMU president Cheryl Pauls welcomed everyone in English and student athlete Dennita Cameron welcomed everyone in Cree, acknowledging the Indigenous lands upon which they all gathered. People won giveaways of bannock pizza from local Indigenous-run restaurant Feast, while cheering on their basketball and volleyball teams. Between games, renowned local hoop dancer Shanley Spence performed a hoop dance and led the crowd in a round dance.
