Join Us for Humanities Research Day on December 12
December 12, 2007

The best of humanities research at Trent University will be shared with the community during the annual Humanities Research Day event taking place on Wednesday, December 12 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Catharine Parr Traill Lecture Hall.

This year’s intriguing theme is "Werewolves, Troubadours, Texts and Global Warming", featuring an engaging and eclectic mix of papers from several disciplines, including English literature, Canadian studies, anthropology, and modern languages and literature.

The day starts with two papers on book preservation and the importance of a writer’s personal letters. It concludes with a discussion of the response to climate change in both science and art. You can look forward to presentations on such diverse topics as werewolves in classical literature, Québec science fiction, amour in the songs of the troubadours, and the archaeological discovery of a new Roman city.

For more information and to register, please contact Wendy Scammell at 748-1736. Coffee is provided at no charge. Lunch is available at a cost $7.00. This event is open to the Trent and Peterborough communities alike and there is no admission charge.

Catharine Parr Traill College is located at 310 London Street, Peterborough.
