The Office of the Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) announced today that a committee will be struck to advise Principal Daniel Woolf on the present state and future prospects of the Faculty of Arts and Science and on the selection of the next dean.

Havana-based pianist Aldo López-Gavilán almost defies categorization.  His piano solos mesmerized audiences at a sold-out Isabel show in October 2014 when he accompanied Carlos Varela.  Now he’s back for a solo show that will illustrate why piano great Chucho Valdés calls him "simply a genius, a star.” A portion of the proceeds from this concert will go to the Sonia Enjamio Fund at Queen’s to support Cuban and Canadian student exchange programs. 

Advance tickets: Students $12, Regular $15, at the door $20.

Professor Marc Epprecht will speak at Historical Visions and Revisions, the 2016 History Graudate Program Speaker Series at Trent University. His talk, The Native Village Devae in Pietersmaritzburg, South Africa, 1848-1926: Revisiting the 'sanitation syndrome,' will take place Tuesday, March 8 at 7:00 pm in Scott House, Senior Common Room, Trail College.
