Bronwyn Jaques, a PhD student in Cultural Studies, traveled to Queen’s Park on February 23 to accept a Lieutenant Governor's Ontario Heritage “Excellence in Conservation” Award for her role in producing the oral history “In Our Own Words: The Links between Kingston’s Heritage and its Penitentiaries”, a project that seeks to understand how penitentiaries have shaped the social fabric of the city of Kingston.

The Faculty of Arts and Science is a scholarly community built upon freedom of inquiry and expression and the equality and dignity of all persons. As Dean, I wish to emphasize our commitment to diversity and inclusion and to assert the importance of non-discriminatory treatment on the basis of gender identity and gender expression. We acknowledge and value equity-seeking members of our community and strive to create a welcoming and supportive environment for all our students, staff and faculty.

Sincerely,
Barbara Crow, PhD
Dean, Faculty of Arts and Science

This fall, Queen's Arts and Science will be launching a new Certificate of Indigenous Languages and Culture. This new certificate program will introduce students to Mohawk, Inuktitut and Anishinaabe languages and deepen students' understanding of Indigenous cultures.

"The internationally-recognized Master of Art Conservation program at Queen’s has received a grant of $632,000 over five years from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to develop conservation research and online courses with a focus on Indigenous material culture.

Specifically, the new funding will help initiate and implement comprehensive change to the program’s curriculum and research activities and will help advance the university’s goals of diversity, equity, anti-racism and inclusion."
