Building knowledge across time: An example of research on participation
Quality of life and definitions of death are both often based on the concept of personhood – a status given by one human being to another as a result of their relationship and successful interaction. Unfortunately, this important attribute is frequently not given to individuals who do not have the ability to communicate or to interact with others. My research is concerned with enhancing the quality of life of non-communicative persons and their caregivers by using novel technologies to reveal and elicit signs of their personhood.
Media@McGill and the AHCS Speaker Series presents "From the Spectacle Society to the Performance Society: Ronald Reagan," a talk given by Media@McGill Beaverbrook Visiting Scholar Peggy Phelan as part of her three-week residency.
Differences between languages and how they are written give us unique opportunities to address three controversial issues in eye-movement control during reading. The three issues are (1) whether the predictability of the next word influences fixation durations before the eye gets to the word; (2) whether we can get the meaning of words before we look at them; and (3) whether information other than initial letters and word length of the next word influence where we send the eyes.
Come put your interview skills into practice! Join us in these mock interview group sessions to sharpen your communication abilities for this crucial step in the employability process:

- Increase your awareness of body language and mannerisms;
- Break through the language barriers that may stand in the way of your confidence.
This workshop is given in two parts. Please make sure to bring your CV to both sessions.
