Prof, Students Featured in the News

August 24, 2010 - In the News

Two U of G biological sciences students are featured on Global Winnipeg after pedalling across Canada this summer in an effort to raise money for dementia research.

Ian Whatley and Ben Love ended their trip in Halifax on Monday. The trip has been a lifelong goal of Whatley and Love, as members of their families have been affected by Alzheimer’s disease. The duo left from Vancouver in June, traveling approximately 120 kilometres a day. They came just a few hundred dollars short of raising their goal of $25,000.

A story on the two students also ran in At Guelph a month before they left.

Prof. Janice Kulyk Keefer's review of the books, All Our Worldly Goods
by Irène Némirovsky and the biography of the author titled The Life of Irène Némirovsky co-written by Olivier Philipponnat and Patrick Lienhardt is featured in the Globe and Mail.

In the article, the English professor talks about what a feat it was that Némirovsky, a Jewish woman, was able to write fiction in the midst of the Nazi invasion of France.

In her review of the biography of Némirovsky, she criticizes the authors for their lack of literary analysis.

Kulyk Keefer is a celebrated Canadian novelist, poet, non-fiction writer, and literary scholar..
