Québécois and Muslim…What Does the Future Hold? A New Exhibition at the Redpath Library Building

The exhibition, Québécois and Muslim…What Does the Future Hold? consists of 34 photographs of various sizes showcasing the diversity of Muslims in Quebec. The photographs draw attention to a more complex reality and move away from the common stereotypes surrounding Muslims.

This exhibition is part of a cross Quebec series of events and is supported by many departments at McGill including the Office of the Associate Provost, the Institute of Islamic Studies and the School of Religious Studies. It was coordinated by Audrey Lamothe of The Peace Network with the support of Élodie Ekobena from Centre justice et foi.

The exhibition will run from January 25th to February 7th, to coincide with Muslim Awareness Week, and is located in the Redpath Library Building, in the recently launched exhibition space.

Virtual Reality and 3D Printing services in Full Swing at McLennan-Redpath

Access to some of the newest and most innovative technology is now within reach for all McGill students and faculty with the re-opening of the McGill Research Commons 3D printing lab and VR space. Equipped with 3D printers, an HTC vive, and an Oculus Rift development kit, McGillians will be able to explore and experiment with the digital world in not just two but three dimensions – all for free – with this cutting-edge service.

After undergoing a brief training session which can be booked here, students and faculty will be able to book time on the 3D printers to use for projects, course work, or simply to experiment. For those less experienced with such technology but who still want to dive in, student staff will be available for assistance weekdays from 12:30 – 5:00PM. Use of the virtual reality equipment does not require a training session, but note that it can be booked only during student hours. Equipment can be booked using the library’s booking system, found here.
