Dr. Susannah Ferreira winner of UGFA Distinguished Professor Award for Innovation in Teaching in the College of Arts
Dr. Susannah Ferreira has just been announced winner of UGFA Distinguished Professor Award for Innovation in Teaching in the College of Arts. Dr. Ferreira is especially known for her work with our students in specialized archival courses employing medieval manuscripts in the Library's Special Collections. Along with Melissa McAfee, these efforts have resulted in the exhibition Illuminating Life: Manuscript Pages of the Middle Ages, curated by University of Guelph students. The manuscripts have also been the focus of outreach to members of the public, including school groups, who visit our archives. Making these rare historical sources accessible and crucial to our teaching has been an immense amount of work and we are very grateful to Susannah for her efforts.
Congratulations from all of us!
