Faculty Publications @ McGill

McGill faculty’s academic publications are internationally renowned and many of our professors are top of their field. Come check out what they have to say in the new Redpath Book Display, on now until the end of December. This selection rounds up some of the best publications McGill faculty has to offer since 2010. Highlights include works by prestigious authors such as Alain Farah, Daniel J. Levitin and Charles Taylor.

Whether your area of interest is history, art, human rights or urban planning, there is sure to be for you. Many Women, Many Voices “celebrates the voices of women […]. Shining a light on the untold stories of the women who have shaped McGill and Montreal, it offers illustrated vignettes from the ROAAr collections – Rare Books and Special Collections, the Osler Library of the History of Medicine, the Visual Arts Collection, and the McGill University Archives.”

Catherine Parr Traill’s The Female Emigrant’s Guide : Cooking with a Canadian Classic is the newest release from Nathalie Cooke, whose previous collection, The Johnson Family Treasury : a collection of household recipes & remedies, 1741-1848, is also included in the display. The National Post review of the Catherine Parr Traill book provides a great analysis of both the historical and culinary importance of the new edition.

Gabriella Coleman, the “world’s foremost scholar on Anonymous,” has 46K Twitter followers!  Trained as a cultural anthropologist, she researches, writes, and teaches on computer hackers and digital activism. Come check out her books on Anonymous and hacking.

Charmaine Nelson is the first tenured Black professor of Art History in Canada. Her latest single-author work, Slavery, Geography, and Empire in Nineteenth-Century Marine Landscapes of Montreal and Jamaica, is “among the first Slavery Studies books – and the first in Art History – to juxtapose temperate and tropical slavery.”

A list of the items included in the display can be found here. A number of publications can also be accessed in ebook format.

Tranquility Zone: New Library Space

Thanks to the support of the Arts Undergraduate Improvement Fund, we have created a new welcoming reading/relaxing nook on the 6th floor of the McLennan Library building.

This Tranquility Zone was designed with our users in mind. The space is not only conducive for learning and relaxation, but is also, a zone that is different from  conventional study space.

On your next visit to the Library, come and stay awhile. Try the Zen garden and absorb some tranquility.
