Bethany Daigle (at right above) will be heading overseas this fall with the support of the Frederick and Catherine Eaton Graduate Fellowship to make use of the extensive Faculty and Library resources offered at Queen’s University, Belfast. Her SSHRC CGS funded project is a natural outgrowth of her MA work: an ambitious and topical comparative analysis of religion and religiosity in South Asian fiction from post-Partition to post-9/11. Bethany’swork will have significant implications for our understanding of a dozen important works of fiction read and taught around the world, and also for the postcolonial theory that has largely framed critical discourse around South Asian diasporic literature for the past 25 years.

Christopher Shaw (at left), a MA student with the Department of Anthropology, will also be travelling overseas this fall with support from the Frederick and Catherine Eaton Graduate Fellowship to take classes with the Department of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Queen’s University, Belfast. Chris will be completing coursework in archaeology and GIS throughout the Fall semester to expand his knowledge of Geographic Information Systems, which he will then apply to field data he has collected from a prehistoric site in Calais, Maine. Chris also hopes to strengthen the collaborative connection between Queen’s University, Belfast and the Department of Anthropology here at UNB.
