Some graduate students have so many good ideas that they need two supervisors to handle the load.

Alice Kuzniar has been named a University Research Chair. This distinction is granted to at most five faculty members a year. The notice from the office of the Vice-President, Academic and Provost reads as follows:
Prof. Alice Kuzniar's graduate seminar Dark Romanticisms was recently featured on the Faculty of Arts website. As the article says, "the lucky students in Alice Kuzniar’s Dark Romanticisms class have spent their term studying the irrational and fantastic – including ghosts, Doppelgänger, talking animals, and vampires."
In co-operation with the German Pedagogical Exchange Office (PAD), the Canadian Association of University Teachers of German is accepting applications for positions as English-language assistants in the Federal Republic of Germany.
