Speaker Series: Eric Mazur... Confessions of a converted lecturer

Wed, 2008-01-16 16:00
Redpath Museum : 859 rue Sherbrooke Ouest Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 0C4

I thought I was a good teacher until I discovered my students were just memorizing information rather than learning to understand the material. Who was to blame? The students? The material? I will explain how I came to the agonizing conclusion that the culprit was neither of these.

Speaker Series: Eric Mazur... Wrapping light around a hair

Thu, 2008-01-17 16:00
Rutherford Physics Building : 3600 rue University Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 2T8

Can light be guided by a fiber whose diameter is much smaller than the wavelength of the light? Can we mold the flow of light on the micrometer scale so it wraps, say, around a hair? Until recently the answer to these questions was "no." We developed a technique for drawing long, freestanding silica wires with diameters down to 50 nm that have a surface smoothness at the atomic level and a high uniformity of diameter.

Are We American? Canadian Culture in North America - Early bird rate ends today!

Wed, 2008-01-09 23:55

Since 1995, the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada (MISC) has hosted large-scale annual conferences that foster informed, non-partisan discussion of public policy issues affecting Canadians. For its 2008 conference, the Institute's attention will turn to Canadian culture and its place in North American life. The conference will bring together artists, entrepreneurs, policy-makers and scholars who are concerned with Canadian culture and its circulation throughout North America. In keynote addresses, focused panels and break-out sessions, the conference will address the question of how Canadian culture, in its various forms, fits within a broader North American identity. See website (below) for details.
