Maja Paderewska Memorial Poverty Project

Just prior to her passing, Maja Paderewska, Anna-Lisa Granbois and Martha Cameron created a multidisciplinary project on poverty.  As a memorial to Maja, Anna-Lisa and Martha have readied the project for publication and we would like to share it with you today.  It is an inquiry project combining the disciplines of Economics and Social Justice, with a strong emphasis on research methodology, critical thinking and academic integrity.  We hope you will agree that this is a fitting tribute to our colleague and friend.

Website of the Week – Today’s Front Pages

Whenever I travel, I love reading the local newspaper.  You can learn so much about what is important to a place by reading their daily papers.  Today’s Front Pages is a great website which gives you access to the front page of over 800 newspapers from around the world.  If you are looking for a different perspective on a story, this is a valuable resource
