Entre Nous with Anastassios Anastassiadis, Phrixos B. Papachristidis Chair

Tue, 2015-02-10 16:07

By Gary Francoeur

In December, leaders from Canada’s Greek community came together to donate $1.2 million to McGill to strengthen Modern Greek research and scholarship and endow the University’s Phrixos B. Papachristidis Chair in Modern Greek and Greek-Canadian Studies in perpetuity.

The gift, which includes contributions from over 70 donors in Montreal and across Canada, will allow McGill to expand the scope of its Greek studies program, one of the few in the country that examines the Greek cultural diaspora through a contemporary lens.

Entre Nous with Rowan Barrett: Between the genes of adaptation

Mon, 2014-05-05 09:32

By Cynthia Lee

What would inspire someone to set up miles and miles of steel fences three feet high and two feet deep in the sand hills of Nebraska? For newly hired evolutionary biologist Rowan Barrett, it’s just another day on the job. The experiment, to study the color of mouse coats, is a way to witness evolution in action, another avenue of unraveling exactly how organisms adapt to their changing environments.
