1st Year Sessions

Each year, the Undergraduate Student Summer Research Fellowship (USSRF) provides students at Queen’s the opportunity to gain some valuable experience that will help them in their continuing studies and into their career.

Through the program, undergraduate students in social sciences, humanities, business and education are able to further develop their research skills under the guidance of a faculty researcher.

Peer-Assisted Learning Workshop with Dr. James Fraser, Department of Physics, Engineering Physics and Astronomy, Queen’s University

Date: Wednesday, April 6, 1:30-3:00 pm

Location: Ellis Hall, Room 319

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.

 

With the Nobel Prize ceremony just a week away, Queen’s University took time to honour Professor Emeritus Arthur McDonald (Physics, Engineering Physics and Astronomy) on Thursday with a special send-off event.

Hundreds of well-wishers filled Grant Hall to mark Dr. McDonald being awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics, along with Takaaki Kajita of the University of Tokyo, “for their key contributions to the experiments which demonstrated that neutrinos change identities.” The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences made the announcement on Oct. 6.

A documentary worked on by Jennifer Ruth Hosek (Languages, Literatures, and Cultures) will premiere at the prestigious International Festival of New Latin American Cinema in Havana in December.

Rodando en La Habana: bicycle stories, a film from Cuban director Jaime Santos, explores the cultural meaning of bicycling and community in Havana. Dr. Hosek, who is cross-appointed to Film and Media Studies, served as associate director and research co-investigator on the film.

The first recipients of the Dean’s Admission Scholarship for the Arts were celebrated recently at a special event hosted by the Faculty of Arts and Science.
