Celebrating our newest PhDs

A doctoral degree is the ultimate culmination of hard work and dedication. After countless hours attending seminars and conducting research, TA'ing or teaching courses and preparing a dissertation, our doctoral students are becoming doctoral graduates.

Congratulations to Randy Allen Harris, professor in the Department of English Language and Literature, who has been named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada (RSC). Dr. Harris is part of a cohort of distinguished Canadians who have made remarkable contributions in the arts, the humanities and the sciences, as well as in Canadian public life.

The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of Canada has just announced the latest round of grant recipients, including 15 Faculty of Arts researchers. Have a look at their project titles and you will see relevance and potential for positive social impacts. Congratulations to our scholars!
