Research Matters

Student mixes love of history with passion for muscle cars

Evan Suntres is astute enough to see the irony in the research path he’s chosen.

A master’s student in history, he is studying a phenomenon which he suggests saw conservative males turn to muscle cars as a way of expressing their masculinity in reaction to such social upheavals of the 1960s as the anti-war and women’s liberation movements.

A self-described political moderate, he’s also in the process of restoring his own 1973 Ford Mustang fastback.

Artists engage community to spell out how to reimagine Windsor

A group of artists from the collective Broken City Lab were busily creating a new installation in a courtyard in Windsor’s downtown core Tuesday afternoon. Known as a ‘text intervention,’ it consisted of a series of 12-inch high styrofoam letters, placed vertically on the ground to spell out the phrase “Hello New Friends.”

It caught the attention of a passenger in a car cruising past on Ouellette Avenue, who stuck her head out the window and waved.

Fish conference a great opportunity for student researchers

A conference being held in Windsor for the first time ever will provide an excellent chance for young researchers studying the ecology and behaviour of fish to meet some of the top scientists in their field, according to one if its organizers.

The Ecological and Evolutionary Ethology of Fishes conference, June 17 to 21, will bring together researchers from across Canada and across the world to discuss their work.
