Research and Graduate Studies


Welcome to the second issue of INSIGHT-FELL (November 2018), which highlights the exciting, dynamic, and multi-disciplinary research of Grenfell Campus's students, staff, and faculty. An initiative of the Associate Vice President of Research and Graduate Studies' office, the newsletter focusses on our individual and group research projects and provides opportunities to share information and connect with each other. Please find links to the content of this INSIGHT-FELL issue below, which covers research from winter and summer 2018.

Also join us for a coffee break and newsletter launch: Thursday, November 29th, 10-11am at the Fine Arts Atrium.

You can also find lots of exciting articles, podcasts, and videos on INSIGHT-BLOG, which features the research of Grenfell Campus' students, staff, and faculty between issues of our research newsletter. Past issues of INSIGHT-FELL are also archived on INSIGHT-BLOG here.
