What's happening at U of T
Brenda Cossman, a professor of law and the director of the Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies, and Ido Katri, a Pierre Elliott Trudeau Scholar and a Vanier Canada Scholar in the Faculty of Law, write that with the passage of Bill C-16, work must now begin to turn formal rights for gender self-determination into substantive protections.
Spotlight on literature
A U of T doctoral engineering student wants Kurdish speakers around the world to read the works of Emily Dickinson. Madeh Piryonesi, who arrived in Canada in 2015 from Iran, translates the literature into Kurdish and Farsi. He has recently published two books of Emily Dickinson's poetry and translated several other works since 2012.
