Each year, Prof. Jason Blokhuis, Associate Professor of Social Development Studies here at Renison, encourages students with outstanding final papers in SDS 405R: Cosmopolitanism and Social Development to consider submitting their work to the Prindle Institute at DePauw University.
This year, two Renison students have won coveted spots at the 11th Annual Undergraduate Ethics Symposium taking place from April 19-21, 2018.
Kailey De Boer
Kailey De Boer was awarded a spot at the symposium for her paper, "The Inconvenient Indian: A Necessary History Lesson for Cosmopolitan Thinking," based on Thomas King's 2012 bestseller.
A joint SDS-Arts and Business major, De Boer will be the third SDS student to represent Renison and the University of Waterloo at the Undergraduate Ethics Sympoisum.
Jennifer Bailey was awarded a spot at the symposium for her paper, "Reflecting on K. Anthony Appiah's Cosmopolitanism: Ethics in a World of Strangers."
Bailey is an Honours Public Health student and, as it happens, the theme of this year's symposium bears on matters of public health. She will be the first AHS student to represent the University of Waterloo at the Undergraduate Ethics Symposium.
Renison University College congratulates both Ms. De Boer and Ms. Bailey on their accomplishments.
