PULLMAN – Canadian scholarship and the many connections WSU faculty, staff and students share with our neighbors to the north will be celebrated in a series of events March 23.
WSU’s own Canada Day (Canada’s Canada Day is July 1) is being organized in conjunction with a visit to Pullman by Canadian Consul General Denis Stevens.
A two-hour poster session featuring Canada-related scholarship is planned 2-4 p.m. in the Museum of Anthropology in College Hall. Brief oral and visual media presentations featuring Canadian-based/focused research will begin at 2:30 p.m. and run until about 3:15. Everyone is welcome and tea and scones will be served.
Anyone conducting Canada-related scholarship is welcome to participate in the poster session. Contact Colin Grier, assistant professor in anthropology, (cgrier@wsu.edu) for more information.
In addition, WSU dining halls will feature Canadian food all day and there will be a lacrosse exhibition and clinic 4:30-5:30 p.m. at the Valley Road Playfield.
The celebration is sponsored by International Programs and the Center for Civic Engagement. Read fun Canada facts here. For more information contact Erin McIlraith at emcilraith@wsu.edu.
