On semiconjugate Rational Functions
Enrico Quilico (MA, 2015), alumnus of our Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education, is helping to raise funds for Brain Injury Canada by participating this weekend's Ironman Triathlon in Lake Placid, VT.
Over ten years ago, Quilico was involved in a motorcycling accident. He was lucky to survive. Now, after rehabilitation for his severe brain injury, he is a graduate of education programs at both McGill and Concordia, and will be teaching adult literacy this autumn.

He characterises the Field innovation as “young know-nothings shooting off their mouths about things they don’t understand”.
Katie MacEntee, Casey Burkholder, and Joshua Schwab-Cartas, PhD candidates in our Department of Integrated Studies in Education, co-edit a new book, What’s a Cellphilm? Integrating Mobile Phone Technology into Participatory Visual Research and Activism, produced by Sense Publishers.
