What is Grad Chat?

A 30 minute radio show featuring one to two graduate students each week.  This is an opportunity for our grad students to showcase their research to the Queen's and Kingston community and how it affects us.  From time to time we will also interview a post-doc or an alum or interview grad students in relation to something topical for the day.

Grad Chat is a collaboration between the School of Graduate Studies and CFRC 101.9FM

How To Sign Up

Just print off and fill in the "Interviewee Form" (70KB).  Return it to Colette in the SGS office at

  • For Queen’s and Kingston to hear about graduate research on campus

Topic: Language Revitalization.

Overview: Language revitalization research recognizes and honours the rights of all Indigenous people to have their needs fulfilled physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. Through this research, I can contribute to language revitalization efforts as well as aiding Indigenous children in developing a strong Indigenous identity that executes pride and power as an urban Indigenous child. This work is particularly significant because research involving Indigenous communities, even when done in collaboration, is frequently conducted by outsiders.
