Tom Dilworth

English professor elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada

Saying he loves university life, his students and teaching, English professor Tom Dilworth is glad to have been elected to the Royal Society of Canada but thinks it would be a mistake to think it means much.

The society named him to its academy of the arts and humanities in September; he will be inducted during a ceremony on Saturday, November 26, at the Ottawa Convention Centre.

“It just means that you have worked hard and published a lot,” says Dr. Dilworth. “What does make it important for me is that I was nominated by Byron Rourke.”
