× When ideas come to life: a conversation with three of UVic’s national award winners

This event is now SOLD OUT.

Join university chancellor and celebrated broadcast journalist Shelagh Rogers for a conversation with three of UVic’s most celebrated scholars. Artist Sandra Meigs, astronomer Sarah Ellison and ethnoecologist Nancy Turner will exchange stories about what it’s like to create knowledge for a living. How has research shaped their professional and personal lives? How do they view their roles as intellectuals in modern society? Chancellor Rogers poses these questions and more in this intimate look at the life of the research-intensive scholar.

This event is hosted by UVic’s Vice-President Research, David Castle.
