New Vanier Main Entrance Enhancement Project Unveiled
Last Monday, Vanier College unveiled a major enhancement
project for the college’s F-wing entrance hallway. The project
involves several components, including the installation of a photo
gallery of some famous Vanier alumni and several 30 x40 colour
posters designed to highlight the Vanier experience for students.
“I feel that this branding initiative will help better reflect the goals
and experiences that Vanier has to offer. The entrance of the
college is a very strategic location. This new project is designed to
inspire the thousands of students and visitors who pass through
the F-wing entrance every year,” said Darren Becker, Director of
Communications and Corporate Affairs at Vanier College.
The first part of the F-wing enhancement project features the
installation of a new panel located by the front entrance of the
College designed to highlight the life and accomplishments of
Georges-Phileas Vanier along with a vinyl cutout of the Vanier
Crest. As well, new panels have been added highlighting the
central focus of Vanier’s Strategic Plan 2015-2020 and the
Declaration of Intent regarding Interculturalism at Vanier.
The second part of the facelift involves the installation of a famous
Vanier alumni section featuring several well-known Vanier
graduates including Thomas Mulcair, Leader of the New
Democratic Party of Canada and Mutsumi Takahashi, co-anchor of
CTV News Montreal. In addition, a large Vanier Wordmark has
been added along with the college’s new slogan: Learning Today.
Leading tomorrow. Finally, four colour posters have been installed
that are designed to reflect the multicultural and diverse student
body at Vanier while showcasing unique reasons to “love Vanier.”
“I think all of these elements put together represent an effective
way to better reflect the best that Vanier College has to offer. At
the same time it allows us to showcase the up-to-date mission and
values as spelled out in the 2015-2020 Strategic Plan while
honouring Georges-Phileas Vanier in a more striking manner,” said
Vanier’s Director General, Mr. Normand W. Bernier.
Mutsumi Takahashi, of CTV Montreal, St-Laurent Mayor Alan De
Sousa and World Wrestling Champion, Dorothy Yeats, were all on
hand for the unveiling.

High School Outreach Project
The high school outreach project consists of a series of
videoconference sessions where Vanier students and teachers
meet up online with students from high schools throughout
Quebec! This semester we will be connecting with 6 different high
schools. There is a different topic every week and Vanier student
mentors get the opportunity to share their thoughts on a range of
topics from academic skills to urban survival skills and the day in
the life of a college student. We need Vanier students for these
sessions to work. The atmosphere is fun and casual, and lunch is
provided!
The videoconferences take place at Vanier on Tuesdays starting
February 5th at 12:30 for 5 weeks. Students can come to as many
or as few sessions as they want. Participation in 3 or more sessions
gets them a letter of recognition that they can list on your CV. They
can also use this project to accumulate volunteer hours for the
STAR program.
If you would allow me to come into classes, I would be happy to
make this announcement and explain the program personally. It
would take no more than 5 minutes of class time! If unavailable for
this, I would ask that you spread the word to your students that we
are in need of volunteers.
Thank you in advance.

UBZEN WINTER 2016
We are in the Sports Complex at the top of the stairs in
Room G-232
12:00-1:00 every Wednesday starting on January 27th.
Students and staff are welcome to
come in and relax in a space free
from the demands of your day.
People basically come in, lie down
on a matt, close their eyes and
listen to the music and audioguided meditations.
Please don’t be shy to come for
only 10 minutes, and to arrive and
leave at any time during the hour.
The hour is a combination of
relaxing
music
and
audio
meditations, and resembles an
extended version of the final relaxation pose in yoga.
This semester we will be exploring self-compassion meditations
with Kristin Neff, Ph.D.: giving ourselves the same kindness and
compassion we’d give a good friend.
Thanks very much for forwarding this to your students and
colleagues.

Wednesday Concert
This Wednesday we are proud to announce that for our first
concert in the auditorium this semester, Eliazer Kramer - one of
our former students will be performing. Eliazer, a pianist who
graduated from Vanier in 2008, is currently studying piano and
composition at the University of Montreal. He is bringing a guest,
Marianne Chapdelaine – a former colleague of his, who will join
him on stage to sing a number of songs. The music of Schubert and
Debussy are the composers represented in this concert and it
certainly promises to be exciting event.
So please join us at noon this Wednesday for this exhilarating
concert…. it’s a great way to break up your workday!

Marguerite Corriveau, Vanier Communications
Vanier College is pleased to announce that Jake’s Café, the
student-run co-op operating on campus, has contributed $10,000
that will be used to fund different initiatives at the Cegep.
“I always felt that establishing a co-op at Vanier would be a winwin situation. Since its opening in September 2014 Jake’s Café has
become an important part of student life at Vanier. At the same
time, by offering students employment opportunities and giving
back to the community, Jakes Café is also serving as a great
example of how co-ops can serve and benefit the college while
promoting healthy-eating lifestyles,” said Mr. Normand W.
Bernier, Director General of Vanier College.
Some of the projects that will benefit from the funding include: the
Vanier Peer Support Network, a student trip to Belize, the Into the
Woods musical that will be presented at Vanier in April, a Liberal
Arts Colloquium, several international projects as well as a study
trip and the Malawi Nursing Exchange program.
The $10,000 contribution was part of the agreement signed
between Vanier College and Jake’s Café in terms of revenue
sharing. The café is the first co-op organization in an English Cegep.

Early Childhood Education Laboratory Nursery
Water day 2016!
On February 3rd stations will be set up through the school for
students to participate in a water relay. Students will carry water
from one station to another in order for them to get a glimpse of
what it might be like to have to have limited access to water. At
each station, there will be information about different issues
related to water and the changing situation of our access to it. We
hope that students will walk away appreciating the supply we
have! Please tell your students to come participate: February 3 rd,
11 am to 3 pm, they can start in the student mall.
An integral part of the Early Childhood Education Department, the
Lab Nursery is an on-site quality child care centre which offers a
morning program for children ages 3 to 5. A team of educators,
comprised of a faculty member and a technician, model best
teaching practices.
The adjoining observation room is equipped with a one-way glass,
cameras and microphones. Accompanied by a teacher, small
groups of students watch children in active play. In selected
courses, students work directly with the children from the Lab.
For more information contact Richard Dugas at Student Services.

APPEL DE PROPOSITIONS DE COMMUNICATIONS AFFICHÉES
AFFICHEZ VOS
DÉCOUVERTES
Activité spéciale tenue par l’ARC
dans le cadre du 84e Congrès de l’Acfas
à l’Université du Québec à Montréal
le mardi 10 mai 2016
Date limite pour soumettre une proposition :
le vendredi 29 janvier 2016
AFFICHEZ VOS
DÉCOUVERTES
l’ARC ?
Fondée en 1988, l’Association pour la recherche au collégial a pour mission
de promouvoir la recherche collégiale par des activités de représentation
et de valorisation ainsi que des services à la collectivité, et ce,
auprès de tous les individus ou groupes concernés.
L’ARC tient chaque année un événement dans
le cadre du congrès de l’Association francophone
pour le savoir – Acfas. Elle vise deux principaux
objectifs par sa participation au plus important
congrès scientifique en français qui soit :
offrir aux chercheuses et aux chercheurs une tribune
pour faire connaître leurs travaux, d’une part, et
favoriser les échanges au sein de la communauté
scientifique collégiale, tout comme entre celle-ci et
l’ensemble des publics rejoints par le congrès
de l’Acfas, d’autre part.
Introduite dans les rencontres scientifiques au milieu
des années 1970, l’affiche est devenue le moyen idéal
de mettre à l’horaire dans ce type d’événements un
nombre important de présentations de résultats.
Ce mode de communication est hybride : il allie
le texte et l’image tout en appuyant, par l’oral, une
transmission rapide et dynamique des connaissances
scientifiques. De plus, l’affiche contribue à multiplier
les échanges et favorise le réseautage.
Date limite pour soumettre une proposition :
le vendredi 29 janvier 2016
Activité spéciale tenue par l’ARC
dans le cadre du 84e Congrès de l’Acfas
à l’Université du Québec à Montréal
le mardi 10 mai 2016
Pourquoi dans le cadre du 84e Congrès de l’Acfas ?
Pourquoi une séance de communications affichées ?
L’ARC remet depuis l’an dernier deux prix coups
de cœur : le premier est décerné pour un titre
de communication précis, informatif, clair – bref,
pour le titre le plus accrocheur; le second,
pour l’affiche qui permet d’embrasser l’essentiel
du message au premier regard, de comprendre
d’abord le langage des images pour ensuite saisir
facilement et progressivement le sens du texte livré,
c’est-à-dire pour l’affiche la plus dynamique.
En 2016, lesquelles des affiches seront les coups
de cœur des congressistes ? Choisissez
soigneusement le titre de votre proposition, puisqu’il
représente votre premier pas dans la compétition !
« Tenir les activités de l’ARC dans le cadre de l’Acfas est un choix intéressant, puisque
ça nous permet d’assister (ou de participer) facilement à d’autres colloques.
De plus, […] il est bien, voire nécessaire, de maintenir un rapprochement entre la
recherche collégiale et [la recherche] universitaire. »
Propos recueillis au terme du colloque tenu par l’ARC dans le cadre du 82e Congrès de l’Acfas
Un titre accrocheur
(maximum de 180 caractères,
espaces comprises)
Un résumé complet

Strange Beliefs
People believe all sorts of strange things. The strangest
beliefs of all, no doubt, are those known as delusions —
the most dramatic symptom of what used to be called
madness and is now called psychosis. Although people
with psychotic illness are often thought to have bizarre
beliefs about all sorts of things, delusional ideas are actually narrowly focused on a small number of themes.
In this talk, I will explore what we can learn about delusions by paying attention to those themes; what they
tell us about the cognitive and brain basis of delusions and about how delusions are altered by culture;
and what delusions might reveal about normal belief.
KEY NOTE EVENT: A Conversation about Doubt
16h00-17h30 SIMON CRITCHLEY, PhD
(British philosopher and author of numerous
books in the Humanities, the History of
Philosophy, Political Theory, Ethics,
Aesthetics, Literature, and Theatre
This year’s keynote event - “A Conversation about Doubt” - promises a candid
discussion on one of humanity’s most
persistent and stubborn states of mind:
doubt. Internationally-renowned philosopher Simon Critchley (New School
for Social Research, NYC) speaks with
professor Lili Petrovic from the Vanier
College Humanities Department, pondering and perplexing over what, if anything, can be said, with any
degree of certainty, about the nature of our doubting.

Resistance or Collaboration of Churches under
Communism in Romania?
This presentation deals with whether or not Romania’s
Christian churches and other religious groups resisted or
collaborated with the communist authorities during the
period 1945-1989, when the country was under communist rule. It will begin from a more general perspective
about dealing with the past, providing explanations and illustrations from around the world about why it is important
for countries to consider their sometimes painful past and
how they do it (e.g. South Africa’s and Canada’s Truth and
Reconciliation Commissions); then, consider how Eastern
European countries have coped with their painful past after transitioning from communism to western-style liberal
democracies; and finally use religious groups in Romania as a case study for resistance and collaboration, the
instrumentalization of resistance and collaboration, issues of retribution, and social reconciliation after 1989.

Lying with Facts: Deception by Suggestion
Usually when we think about deception, we think about
people knowingly saying things that aren’t true. But this
paper will examine a specific kind of deception: to “lie
with facts” is to attempt to make us believe something
false without saying anything untrue, like for example,
saying there is “natural grapefruit extract” in a face wash
that is mostly just alcohol. Being deceived about face
wash is insignificant, but when we are lied to with facts
about our health, about which political candidate best
reflects our values and priorities, about global issues like
climate change, poverty, and terrorism, being able to spot
and avoid this type of deception is of critical importance.
All presentations take place in the Vanier
Auditorium (A-103)

Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is
absurd. – Voltaire.
Doubt is often uncomfortable, perhaps even painful.
We would all like to be certain of our beliefs. Within the Humanities, however, it has long been recognized that doubt and knowledge are not opposites
– Socrates was the wisest man in Athens precisely
because he was able to question his beliefs. Modern
philosophy begins with Descartes and his method of
doubt. Deeper understanding and knowledge – as opposed to the hollow certainty referred to by Voltaire
in the above quotation -- is the result of being able
to subject ideas to critical analysis, that is, at least in
the first instance, to doubt. Again, this can be profoundly disconcerting. Consider the following questions: Was the executed criminal actually guilty? Is
it right to kill someone for crimes we think they have
committed? Are you sure your partner is not cheating on you? Does God exist? Do we know anything at
all? In each case, however we respond to these questions, doubt may be unwelcome. But if we are to move
beyond mere belief to deeper understanding, we must
employ doubt as a fundamental philosophical tool.
This year’s Humanities Symposium will look at the
problem of doubt from a variety of perspectives:
through philosophy, math, science, religion, the arts,
language, and media, we will hopefully understand
something more about that which we do not really know.

Does Science Encourage Philosophy to Embrace
Doubt?
Science is often held up as the archetype of certainty with regards to our knowledge of the world and the
manifest image of the world is slowly being replaced
by a scientific image that is increasingly at odds with
our everyday experience.This presentation does not intend to dispute this perspective (one which has been
extremely productive), but rather to look at some as-
pects of science that are less than certain and that should
nevertheless be embraced. It will concentrate on a comparison of the use and explanatory power of stemmatics
(the building of family trees) in philosophy, philology and
evolutionary biology to encourage philosophers to embrace a type of doubt already recognized by biologists.
11h30-13h00 M.E. LUKA, PhD
(Banting Postdoctoral Fellow, York University)
Overcoming Doubt: Creativity, Citizenship and You
We have all heard it: I doubt you can do that. I doubt
that will work. I doubt the whole idea. How can creative
citizenship help make us smart about our relationship to
doubt in the production of media and culture? One answer is by sharing, which includes sharing our doubts.
This talk takes an optimistic view of doubt, harnessing its
energy instead of falling prey to its pitfalls and perils. It
explores how working in media and culture and networked
civic and creative collaborations can activate policy and
address sustainable roles for creative workers today.
13h00-14h30 REBECCA MARGOLIS, PhD

Vos far a fak is dos: Can a Dying Language Live?
If a language is “threatened,” can new things happen
in it? This talk looks at the ways in which “threatened”
languages in Canada are spoken and used and their potential for new creativity. It looks at two cases: the Aboriginal language of Mikmaq, and Yiddish, a language
of Eastern European Jewish immigration to Canada.

Beyond Reasonable Doubt…
Of all systems of knowledge, mathematics is often perceived as the one that offers the best claim to absolute
truth. But how much do we really know? Are there limits
to mathematical knowledge? Worse, can we really say that
we know anything, even in math? Starting with the ancient
Greeks, this presentation will explore the reasons why mathematics came to be perceived as a bedrock of unquestionable truth, and will then follow the development of cracks
in its foundation through the ideas of Riemann and Gödel.

Film viewing: “Doubt” Meryl Streep, Phillip
Seymour Hoffman - Christian Theological
Reflections on Doubt, Faith and Trust
Terms like ‘proof’ and ‘certainty’ reveal our deepest longing for a stable world which minimizes fears related to
the unexpected. Yet, in contrast there also remains an
aspect of the human experience that is drawn to themes
of mystery and faith which suggest metaphysical possibilities. In such a world numerous academic disci-
plines continue to propose new possibilities that create
room for a fresh and much needed dialogue on themes
like faith and doubt. This paper will also provide some
theological insight into ideas about faith, mistrust and
doubt by making reference to a 2008 film called Doubt.
Based on the 1995 Pulitzer prize winning stage play by
John Patrick Shanley, this movie provides a contextual
backdrop for many contemporary questions related to
doubt, faith and our larger systems of church leadership.
SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER
11h30-13h00 BOB MCDONALD
(Canadian author and science journalist,
CBC radio host and television commentator)
What if Everything We Know Is Wrong?
The way we see the world with our five
senses is wrong; the ground seems
solid and unmoving, the horizon is flat,
the sky looks like a dome and it appears that we are at the centre of the
universe. Science has shown us the
true perspective—that we live on a ball
orbiting a star in an ever-expanding universe. But sometimes science makes mistakes too. This
presentation will explore how doubt is an important tool
in science to make sure we eventually get things right.
15h30-17h00 SUSAN HOFFMANN, PhD
(MCGILL UNIVERSITY)
Kierkegaard and the Rehabilitation of Doubt
Philosophers are often criticized for their emphasis on
questioning and doubting everything, leaving us with
no firm and final answers about the important questions they raise. Their audience sometimes concludes
that it is all a matter of opinion, and that anything goes
in philosophy. Søren Kierkegaard, a nineteenth century Danish existentialist philosopher, was discouraged
by such skepticism CANCELLED
in philosophy, and such skepticism
about philosophy, and wrote a searing critique concerning the overemphasis on doubting in philosophical
thinking. In this talk, I will examine Kierkegaard’s account of doubt and will suggest that doubting is a positive and productive act that brings us the freedom from
anxiety and the peace of mind in our life decisions.

10h30-12h00 JEFF SIMS, PhD

The Fly in the Fly-Bottle
Doubt is by nature a negative process to which we often
ascribe negative values and emotions. Yet, our capacity
to doubt is an essential element of human freedom and
creative thinking: it is a liberation from imposed prejudice.
Doubt, therefore, occupies something of an ironic place in
our consciousness of the world. Specifically, it is because
our “environments” and “horizons” are open to interpretation -- ad infinitum -- that they become objects of manifest doubt, as well as vistas of renewed human freedom.
SPECIAL HUMANITIES LECTURE
13h30-15h00 ANDREW LAWLESS, PhD
(University of Toronto)
Big Doubt
This lecture is about those annoying questions philosophy teachers often torture students with: Does the world
exist? Can we know anything about it? They seem absurdly exaggerated and sensible people — i.e. anyone
but philosophers — can be forgiven if they are impatient
with them. I will, however, argue that there is a point to
them; that taking them seriously can bring certain issues
about our grasp of reality into sharper focus and show us
that that we don’t always know what we think we know.
16h00-17h30 EMILIA ANGELOVA, PhD
(CONCORDIA UNIVERSITY)
Ethical Solipsism and Risk in Hegel’s Antigone
In 1807, Hegel appropriates the figure of Antigone, daughter of Oedipus, from the Greek tragedy of Sophocles, to
demonstrate that the political space of the state in which
human beings lead a common life is open to both moral
and ethical demands determining the subject of action.
I will consider the ethics of Antigone as one instance of
how the Hegelian individual opposes the tyrannical legal
order of the ruler (in this case opposing Creon), and will
arrive at conclusions which we can draw today, on assuming responsibility for one’s actions in difficult times.
THURSDAY, FEB 4
8h30-10h00 DAVID KOLOSZYC, PhD
(VANIER COLLEGE, MCGILL UNIVERSITY)
The Cruelty of Reason: Doubt and Certainty in
the Age of Progress
Reason is a cruel companion to our dreams of the good
life, forcing upon us questions we can neither ignore nor
answer once and for all. Perhaps this is why the perpetual
improvement of the standard of living, which we all-tooeasily identify with progress, has so much to do with the
elimination of doubt. The aim of this presentation will be
to consider the human passion for certainty, along with
the peculiar and often misleading modern belief that
knowledge and certainty are one and the same thing.
