Hi folks,

This weeks weekly pub night will be happening at 8pm @ Patty’s Pub on Bank St. just south of Sunnyside! While you’re there, please give the three new “Ashton” beers a try! They are made just 45 minutes away in Ashton, ON by the owners of Patty’s and Quinn’s!

I won’t be in attendance this week due to a tournament in London, but have a great time and let me know how it goes!


This Friday, the Department will welcome Keith Oatley (Professor Emeritus, University of Toronto) to deliver the inaugural Shannon Lecture of 2011, entitled “Emotions in Literary History, and the History of Emotions.” The talk is the first in this year’s series, which explores the theme of “Past Feeling: History and the Emotions.”

Dr. Oatley’s talk will take place at 1.30 in 303 Paterson Hall, and will be followed by a reception in the History Lounge. All are welcome to attend!
