On Saturday, 21 September, we continued an annual CSMM tradition, in which the graduating MA class shares their research with the incoming class.
At the University Club, students and faculty heard presentations on an exciting range of topics: the marketing of LGBTQ outness, representations of Palestinian people in Canadian news, Black television in a post-television era, masculinities in Star Wars, technology and power in learning management systems, notions of success for independent musicians, and programming canons for live coding.
Congratulations to our presenters–Gil Niessen, Tala Al-Ramahi, Sumi Voora, Emmanuel Appiah, Victoria Throckmorton, Alejandro Franco Briones, and Timon Moolman–and to our entire 2019 MA class! Welcome to our incoming 2020 class! Thank you to our supervisors and second readers–and especially our grad chair, Dr. Faiza Hirji. And, finally, as always, a big thank you to Cassandra Weimann for putting together such a successful event!
