All Day Brantford: Our Immigrant Stories (Multi-Day Event)

“Brantford: Our Immigrant Stories” is a Public History exhibit produced by the students of HI 323: Memory, Monuments, Museums at Laurier Brantford. The opening event will take place on April 4 from 2:30 to 4 pm in the RCW Lobby of Laurier Brantford Campus. The exhibit will be in two locations: one interactive exhibition (April 4 -18) in the RCW Lobby and one long-term exhibit at Brant Museum and Archives starting April 4.

The exhibits are based on an extensive archival research done by students on the history of early Brantford’s immigrant communities. While the city’s official history largely focuses on its industrial and military past as well as the accomplishments of select individuals like Alexander Graham Bell, this exhibit will promote diversity and inclusion, also to bring to light the marginalized and underrepresented groups in Brantford's past to the university and the city.

For more information, email Dr. Christina Han or visit our website.

  • End Day University Teaching Foundations - April Intensive (Multi-Day Event)

    The University Teaching Foundations Certificate consists of a series of hands-on workshops and microteaching sessions to provide graduate students a basic foundation for success in the classroom as a teaching assistant as well as gain transferable skills for use in future employment opportunities. This is the intensive offering of the certificate in which the five required workshops and two required microteaching sessions are offerred. Mandatory workshop sessions are scheduled on: April 4 - morning: 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and April 5th - all day: 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    Register for the session.

  • 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM Barry Ace: Coalesce, Mixed Media Installation (Opening)

    Join us to celebrate the final exhibition of the season.

    Coalesce presents a fusion of distinct Anishinaabeg aesthetics of the Great Lakes’ region with the refuse from Western society’s technological and digital age. This entanglement of materials intentionally shifts the object’s materiality and its accepted paradigm within the physical world. Through this integration and juxtaposition of recognizable Anishinaabeg materials used in Anishinaabeg material culture (e.g. glass beads, porcupine quills), with contemporary electronic materials (e.g. capacitors and resistors), the exhibition will challenge viewers to reject and re-examine notions of cultural status.

    11:30 AM - 1:00 PM April Drop-In Lunch
    Join Laurier International and Conestoga College's monthly drop-in lunch for a free meal and to meet people from across campus!

    The MS2Discovery Interdisciplinary Research Institute Seminar

    Speaker

    Sivabal Sivaloganathan, University of Waterloo

    Sivabal Sivaloganathan received his PhD from Oxford University and was Senior Scholar and Research Fellow at Oxford (1985-88). He then accepted a tenure track position in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Alberta, before joining the University of Waterloo in 1990, where he is currently Chair of the Department of Applied Mathematics. Sivabal Sivaloganathan is also Director of the Centre for Mathematical Medicine at the Fields Institute, a nexus for mathematical and biomedical researchers, which aims to foster and stimulate collaborative research and interaction between the mathematical and biomedical sciences.

    Title

    Mathematical Medicine: From Neurosurgery to Oncology to PK Modelling of Chemotherapeutic Drugs

    Abstract

    In the last two to three decades, the nascent field of Mathematical Medicine has expanded dramatically, and advances have been made on many fronts. In this talk, we focus on two problems that occur in clinical medicine (one drawn from the field of neurosurgery and the other from oncology). We hope to show how closer synergy and interaction between the Biomedical and Mathematical Sciences, can lead to dramatic advances in clinical medicine. The unifying aim of mathematical modelling and experimental studies in the biomedical sciences is the elucidation of the underlying biological mechanisms and processes that lead to particular observed phenomena (eg. brain tissue compression in hydrocephalus, brain tumours etc.). It is (of course) clear that mathematical descriptions of biological phenomena are not biological explanations. Apart from its explanatory power, the true test of any mathematical description or theory is in its predictions.

    7:30 PM Chamber Music (Multi-Day Event)

    With guidance from Chamber Music Director Christine Vlajk, hear our student lead chamber music ensembles perform in different pairings. Ensembles may include string quartet, wind octet and percussion ensembles.
