The Office of Provost and VP Academic have announced their 2021 Achievement award recipients, and we wanted to extend our enthusiastic congratuations to Brittney Bos for winning the Contract Instructor Teaching Award.  She states “I always remind learners: I’m formally listed as your instructor, but I’m actually your feminist educator who is here to share knowledge and resources, and facilitate discussions centred on your experiences by providing support along your learning journey. I intertwine numerous related theories and methodologies into the classroom to break power structures. Through innovative assignments and experiential class discussions, I encourage engagement with “real world” scenarios and present materials in accessible language for all learners.”

We’d also like to take this opportunity to congratulate Dr. Laura Horak, one of our cross-appointed faculty with Film Studies, who has also been awarded the 2021 Research Achievement Award for her project “Mapping Media Landscapes”, where she investigates the aesthetic, political, and cultural work of trans-made films in Canada and the US from the 1990s to today.
