Update of the Media Guide to McGill Experts

Fri, 2013-04-26 16:23

Every day, members of the local, national, and international media look to McGill for expertise and commentary on a vast range of topics in the news. McGill’s Media Relations Office (MRO) handles most of these calls and, as in all leading universities, publishes an online directory of experts that is made available to journalists to make their jobs easier.

We are writing to ask for your collaboration in helping the MRO update the Guide to McGill Experts, ensuring it is as complete and accurate as possible.

Only fifteen minutes of fame?

Sociologists find that Andy Warhol got it wrong… or at least was only partly right
Thu, 2013-03-28 10:19

True fame isn’t fleeting. That’s what a team of researchers led by Eran Shor from McGill University’s Dept. of Sociology and Arnout van de Rijt of Stony Brook University conclude. They studied all the names mentioned in over 2,000 English-language newspapers from the U.S., Canada and the U.K. over a period of several decades. What they found was that, contrary to popular belief (and scholarly research up to now), the people who become truly famous stay famous for decades, and that this is the case whatever field they are in, including sports and politics.
