Congratulations to doctoral candidates Merle Massie and Heather Stanley, who took first and joint-second prize respectively in the Humanities and Fine Arts division at last Friday's first annual Arts and Science Graduate Student Exposition. Seventy posters representing the research projects of our best and brightest from departments across the College were presented in the Education Building gym, along with presentations and performances from students in Art and the Fine Arts. Merle, Heather, and Kevin Gambell held the History flag aloft. Hung their posters, anyway. And fine posters they are. You can see them for yourselves, mounted on the bulletin boards near the far end of our beloved seventh floor.

Keith Carlson will be delivering a short talk on Aboriginal veterans and war brides at Browsers following the Remembrance Day ceremony at the University Memorial Gates, Nov 11th at 12:45.

Meanwhile, word has reached the Incident Room of the What's Up Newsroom that Scout troop leader Geoff Cunfer, and Cub pack leader Keith Carlson, will be leading their troop and pack at the same 12:45 ceremony, where the youngsters, dressed in their Baden Powell uniforms, will lay wreaths at the Memorial Gates.
You, yes YOU! (assuming You are of legal pubbing age) are invited to the HUSA Bxxr Night, Saturday, November 8th, 2008 from 8-10pm at The Hose on 11th St (just off Broadway). Tickets are $10 and are on sale at the bottom of the arts ramp this week. Tickets will also be available at the door, though it would greatly assist the organizers to know in advance how many folk to expect. If you have any questions about the event, please contact Kristina at

What's Up provides the above message as a public service announcement on behalf of HUSA, the History Undergraduate Student Association. The event in question is not sponsored by the History Department or the U of S. I know that must disappoint you because you would rather mingle with faculty than do whatever it is you young people do at a bar these days when not chaperoned by your instructors, but we do nevertheless wish you all a fun and safe evening.
