Stephen Lewis at Mac

As the UN special envoy on AIDS in Africa, Stephen Lewis has seen heartbreaking and inspiring episodes. Canada, and especially the students and researchers at Macdonald campus, can do a lot to help.

MISC thinks global

A recent conference on Canada's place in the world, sponsored by MISC, brought in three federal ministers to talk about Canada's place in the world.

Looking out for Quebec's good health

A roundtable on Quebec's health care strategy brought together educators, practitioners, managers and politicians to discuss the future of the province's well-being.

Big ideas, mini courses

You won't be able to file your briefs after graduation (and we're not talking of organizing your underwear drawer), but students of McGill's newest law program will get their fill of all things legal. The Mini-Law program is aimed at a general audience to educate the common (and civil) folk on matters civil (and common).

Cool research sizzles

A group of McGill professors recently got together to talk about cold-weather research, and its effect on everything from microscopic life forms to very macroscopic Montreal potholes.

SYTACom goes live

SYTACom will serve as an intellectual watering hole, drawing together and nourishing researchers working on advanced systems and technologies in communications. The new infrastructure will pool knowledge and build networks.

Nature, culture and inappropriate love objects

Donna Haraway likes her dogs, and she wants people to think about what that means: how we think of our pets can, but rarely does, make us reconsider humanity's place in the natural world.

Senate: Space, safety and staff renewal

Senate discussed recruitment, health and safety, and asked if someone could open a window around here.

In Focus

Kate Rhodes is a former SSMU president who now works for the McGill Alumni Association. Serving students is still her goal. Computer scientist Mathieu Blanchette is a paleontologist of sorts, one who works with algorithms and microprocessors instead of shovels in the quest of ancient species.

Entre nous with Vice-Principal (Inter-Institutional Relations) Janyne Hodder
