Public Issues Anthropology MA graduate Kate Elliott has made her mark at the University in a number of impressive ways, especially for her activism around period poverty and period education. Her research and advocacy centres on the health of women experiencing homelessness, and specifically how structural violence impacts their lived experiences. 

When he was an undergraduate in Winnipeg, Harrison Oakes (MA ’16, PhD '20) witnessed the difficulty of promoting change for marginalized groups when he sat in on hearings for Manitoba’s proposed Bill 18. People argued that they couldn’t see how the legislation for anti-bullying to protect LGBTQ+ youth applied to all kids. Seven years later, Oakes’ doctoral research helps to answer that question.

Celebrating our newest PhDs

It's a long and often winding road to take doctoral studies to the finish line. From seminars, to exams, to TAs, RAs or course teaching, to research, research, research, and to the final thesis defense -- many of which were remotely conducted in this time of COVID. It's a huge accomplishment and the Faculty of Arts is so proud of our newest cohort of Doctors of Philosophy.

The Faculty of Arts proudly celebrates all graduates (more than 1,400 of them!) who would have been walking across the stage to receive their diploma's this week. As part of our virtual spring 2020 convocation celebrations, we warmly congratulate the distinguished undergraduates recieving top performance awards. 

Spring term is one of our favourite times of year! While we can't be together on campus this year, we found some background photos in our archives to bring a little UWaterloo Arts home with us. (After all, who isn't spending more time online thanks to online classes, meetings and social gatherings?)
