What Our Faculty Are Up To
When Huda Hassan was writing her applications to graduate school, she had no mentors in academia to turn to for advice. She asked for help through social media, and three black women offered to lend a hand.
Nearly two years later, Hassan – now a first-year PhD student in women and gender studies at U of T – is returning the favour.
“If you're a black woman applying for grad school & would like a writer+phd student to revise your statement, email me: firstname.lastname@example.org,” she tweeted recently.
One of U of T’s earliest Tamil alumni has given a historic donation of $2 million to support Tamil studies program.
The gift from Ravi Gukathasan, who is CEO of Digital Specialty Chemicals Ltd. in Scarborough, is the largest single cash gift from an alumnus in U of T Scarborough's history. It will fund an annual post-doctoral fellowship in Tamil studies as well as scholarships, event programming and digital archiving.
Tens of thousands of ancient Ethiopic manuscripts – maybe more – have collected dust for over a century because they are written in what is now a rarely studied language, Ge’ez.
