We invite you to attend a very special one-day symposium featuring invited presentations that will explore and appreciate the scholarly contributions of Will Straw on the occasion of his retirement from McGill University. Film, music, scenes, night, circulation – Will’s research has influenced so many scholarly and popular domains. Join us to acknowledge and assess this vast impact with panels, lunch, and a reception.


Reserve your spot here by May 1, 2024: https://forms.gle/mnQxKLZjxhYf2GfUA.


This event is free and attendance for the entire day is encouraged. Space is limited - priority will be given to former students, postdocs and collaborators of Will Straw.
