2. Geographies of Solitude
A Montréal based filmmaker and former Mcgill student, Meryam Joobeur, is looking for advice for a documentary she’s collaborating on with filmmaker Jacky Mills.
“The documentary ‘Gerographies of Solitude’ is about Sable Island, a small island off the coast of Nova Scotia. It’s an artistic project that explores the bio-diversity of the island but also human relationship to nature and environmental issues. We’d like to do micro-photography of specimens from island including water samples and we’re looking to gain access to a Mcgill lab with microscopes. I was wondering if … anyone would be willing to help us gain lab access and advise us on technical questions relating to microscopes.”
Email email@example.com if you’re interested.
3. North American Caribou Workshop
The conference is “being held in Ottawa, Ontario between Oct 29 – Nov 2, 2018. The NACW conference functions as a forum for knowledge-sharing and learning about caribou from multiple perspectives and geographies and therefore we are hoping to increase the student present at this year’s conference. We will be hosting an oral and poster presentation competition, with abstracts submission now open online. Travel grants are also available for presenting students and allocated via a lottery system.”
They’re also looking for student volunteers who will get reduced registration fees. Email EmmeliePaquette@cmail.carleton.ca for more information.
3. Summer BGSA Events
