Much has been made of McGill's hiring boom in the last few years, and rightly so. Roughly one hundred professors are joining the faculty every year. They come from all over the world, and they bring with them fresh ideas and fresh approaches to their fields. The Reporter is profiling eight of the new faculty to join our institution. Their interests are but a sampling of the scholarship flooding McGill: the relationship between nationalism and theatre, between coffee and socio-political change, why kids lie, the history of contraceptives, using stem cells to make saliva glands and many more. So read on, and meet the neighbours.
