From Western News, May 17, 2018: When Ann Lamanes came to Western in 1996, she hoped to study Geography and perhaps pursue a career in urban planning. But rapid technological advances changed the map - and her plans.
She has never worked as an academic in Canada. Yet for Lisa Henderson, there is an element of homecoming in her upcoming move to Western. Her parents met as actors at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. Her mother was a local television celebrity on Panorama.
On Friday, April 13, 2018, graduate students and faculty members from Information and Media Studies (FIMS), Music, and Law came together for the second-annual FIMULAW Graduate Interdisciplinary Research Day.
