Posted on Wednesday, May 3, 2017

Our Faculty's newest members were inducted into the RSC academies at a ceremony in Winnipeg on November 24, 2017.

Lucie Hotte is a professor at the Département de français who holds the Chaire de recherche sur les cultures et les littératures francophones du Canada (a research chair in Francophone cultures and literatures in Canada). Her research on French-language Canadian literature has transformed the way in which researchers address the literatures of minority groups.

Jitse Dijkstra is a professor in the Department of Classics and Religious Studies. Dijkstra studies how Christianity transformed society during Late Antiquity, particularly in Egypt, where he has conducted fieldwork for more than 15 years.
