After careful consideration, we have decided to postpone MISC’s Annual Conference for one year to October 28 and 29, 2021. While we will continue to organize online programming throughout the upcoming Fall and Winter semesters, we feel that it is best if the Annual Conference remain a space in which students, speakers, and audience members have the opportunity to convene and fully participate in these conversations.

To that end, we are positioning some of our online events as a lead-up to the 2021 Annual Conference.

"Original Meaning Isn't Everything"

Re: McGill Redmen should keep their name (Martin Patriquin, Oct 18)

Martin Patriquin suggests McGill University should keep the name of the men's varsity team, the Redmen. He writes that a decision to do otherwise would be "cowardice", an unprincipled abdication to political correctness. I disagree.
