Pride and press: The ecosystem of McGill’s student media

Growing up, I always answered the ubiquitous question, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ with the word ‘journalist.’ Of course, I didn’t know nearly half of what the term meant, and even now am only beginning to scratch the surface of it. I simply knew that I had a passion for… Keep Reading

Constructing Chinatown: The Lore of Representation

At first glance, Chinatown seems an innocuous space to experience and explore Chinese culture.

Whether you are going to the library to work on a group assignment, cram for an exam, or to pick up a book, the atmosphere of knowledge is palpable. Sure, the… Keep Reading

In the beginning, God created the scientist

The Christian Old Testament tells beautiful stories. It is poetic, rich in morals, and well-written. The beginning of the world, as described by Genesis 1, creates a haze whereby from nothing, God creates something. “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth,” the Bible reads. “On the first day, God said, ‘Let there be… Keep Reading

During the recent United Nations (UN) conference on climate change (COP21) last December, youth activists successfully negotiated with member states to acknowledge the importance of intergenerational equity when taking action to address climate change in the Paris Agreement. “This is a testament to an entirely youth-driven, multi-year lobbying effort to situate the well-being of future generations… Keep Reading
