Professor Simone Fullagar will be visiting Waterloo from the University of Bath in the U.K. Simone is this years 2015 Shaw-Mannell Leisure Research Award winner and will be giving a public lecture and will be made available for a reception afterwards.
Her lecture will be on "Embodied minds and gendered lives: Leisure practices as sites of social transformation". Simone will speak to research on women's everyday leisure practices and embodied well-being and offer a feminist perspective on the material, affective and discursive forces that shape ‘freedom’ within advanced liberalism.
The Faculty of Applied Health Sciences (AHS) along with the Murray Alzheimer Research and Education Program (MAREP) at the University of Waterloo are planning a hackathon specifically focused on two neurological conditions: Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Such an event typically brings together computer programmers, software and hardware developers, graphic designers and project managers alongside other enthusiastic participants who will collaborate in an effort to create new and accessible technology.
Attend AHS 101 on July 11 and learn how you can excel in your first year at UWaterloo. You’ll meet your academic advisor and because AHS 101 is during fall course selection, you can get help and ask questions about your schedule. You’ll also meet the upper-year students and professors who make up part of the close-knit AHS community.
Please join us to engage with Dr. Bryan Grimwood (Department of Recreation & Leisure Studies) as he presents "Disrupting Nature and Responsibility for Just and Sustainable Arctic Tourism".
