Peers confront sexual violence through bystander training workshops

Growing up in the hyper-masculine atmosphere that goes along with male-dominated sports like travel hockey, Dylan Schentag heard his fair share of sexist locker room jokes and crude remarks about women.

Now a third-year psychology major, he’s doing his part to help change the channel and discourage a culture that objectifies women and ultimately leads to the trivialization of sexual assault.

Heidi JacobsInformation literacy librarian Heidi Jacobs believes it's time to reconsider what we're really trying to accomplish when we give out research assignments.

Time to reconsider research assignments, librarian suggests

Whether buying a car, voting, applying for a new job or gathering the latest medical information for a sick family member, a critical eye and the ability to effectively conduct good quality research are essentials.

That’s why we need to think more about how our students exist in the world when handing out research assignments, according to an information literacy librarian whose scholarly research focuses on students and research.

UWindsor filmmakers to screen docs at WIFF

A new film that focuses on a pioneer of the women’s movement in Windsor is much more than a lesson in feminism, according to its co-director.

“It’s a lesson in the history of the city, and a lesson about how you can live your life really caring about other people, and have an incredibly fulfilling life,” Kim Nelson says of This is What a Feminist Sounds Like.

Cultures prof identifies rare ancient Greek coin

An ancient cultures professor has discovered that what first appeared like a “cruddy piece of bronze” is actually a 2,300-year-old coin, calling in to question previously held beliefs that the Greek city where it was made was completely destroyed by a natural disaster.

Acknowledging sexual assault focus of PhD thesis

Even though by the letter of the law they may have been sexually assaulted, an alarming number of women don’t label what happened to them as sexual assault or rape, according to Dusty Johnstone.

A post-doctoral teaching fellow in Women’s Studies, Dr. Johnstone recently defended her 250-page PhD dissertation, a qualitative study based on interviews of 10 women who technically had been sexually assaulted, but didn’t label their experiences as such.

Rare 'hybrid' manta ray discovered by UWindsor scientists

A rare type of hybrid manta ray has been discovered in the Red Sea thanks to the work of a trio of University of Windsor scientists and their research partners in Sudan.

The ray, a cross between a Reef Manta Ray (Manta alfredi) and a Giant Manta Ray (Manta birostris), is only the second documented case of hybridization in elasmobranchs, the subclass of fish that includes sharks and rays, according to the group.
